Perhaps please don't pollute will run errands for those who don't have bikes, can't walk to or have good public transportation to wherever they need to go. If we had safe, easy access to public transportation, I'd be happy to take it. Otherwise, don't pollute can run my errands - thanks in advance.

Well, gosh, let's see...Sunday is Father's Day & it's always harder to do errands on a Sunday than a Saturday. If your kids' health is that important, keep them indoors tomorrow. Since I'm a low polluting citizen w/a spouse who cycles, I feel *fine* about using the car tomorrow. We're already not BBQing due to spare the air. Hopefully, don't pollute, those worried about their kids can figure out how to protect them on days like tomorrow since most people will drive wherever they need to go, anyway.

The irony is that there are comments about protecting the children when one of the problems we have are that there are too many children. The comment above is all about selfishness, but nothing has been said about being careful w/family planning as well as how we behave on days like today - & all other days.
How many people reading this use a clothesline? Car pool and/or use public transpo some of the time? Grow a bit of their own food? Don't worship their lawn? Don't buy a gas guzzler when it's time for a new car?
We all have to balance convenience w/preservation. But the lack of clotheslines in the area will show you how few of us even are willing to reframe the difference between convenience, necessity & that confusing place in between.

not everyone has to have children. some people are made for other things. its the western pilgrim family oriented ideas that drive your culture. not true in ancient times when not all women would mate due to unfavorable conditions. people think they must have child to be seen as part of the group approval. btw, there have been people making good amounts of money who never used a clothes dryer for long periods! just hang em' up in closet. they will be dry by tomorrow afternoon!
