Years ago I saw David Sedaris at the Paramount in Austin, TX. The entire show was him simply standing on stage reading passages from one of his books, and it remains one of the funniest performances I've ever seen.

Woman meets David and says to him, "you are much nicer in person". His reply, "no, I'm just two faced".

Way back in 1968, I was riding my bicycle to a friend's house, (about a mile on a country road in western Massachusetts) and randomly decided to pick up litter, arriving wirh 2 bags hanging from my handlebars. When I asked permission to put it in their garbage can, I was condemned by the mother, (an Irish immigrant) as a hippie weirdo, and my friend was forbidden to hang out with me. Why?

Anyone want to help clean up the world? I use Litterati to register the litter I pick up. Oh, and if you are Dutch, help us beat the Americans. We're almost number one in the world! #litterati #litter #zwerfafval

Luckily where i like they do a provisional vote of like 12 issues and you get to pick 3 of the options on how to spend district money. I always pick things that keep the city clean. I petition my aldermen about it. And do it as a moment of zen for an hour before i go to bed. Broken window theory. might not do much but, it isnt nothing.

David seems to be Obsessive Compulsive. On another note, people in the beautiful suburbs of South Florida do the same thing. Walking a dog in that area is very difficult because among the many things they throw in the grass are chicken bones from well known fast food chains. Before you know it , your dog will be chewing on a bone that you couldn't see because the grass is too tall and thick, but the dog smelled it a block away. Very annoying, there other things that people throw out the window, like things with DNA. Let's leave at that.

I pick up trash in my town while I walk my dog. It's just a small way to create beauty. I'm there anyway, so why not?

People who say "is that really the biggest problem?" in that tone anoy the heck out of me. Are we only allowed to act on one problem at a time? How will we get anything done that way?

This is so inspiring! I try and pick up stuff I pass by on my way here and there, because it makes me feel better than being angry and sad about the littering AND WALKING ON PAST IT. Hopefully some of the people who see us pick up trash are inspired to act or shamed out of littering instead of just weirded out.

Years and years ago I constantly griped about garbage laying around, especially the garbage that made it's way into my yard, driveway, parking spot, etc. I was mad all the time about it. One day I had the revelation that I was making myself sick about garbage/disrespect of the earth. Boom! From that second on I started picking up garbage whereever I am. I got a 'grabber' to pick stuff up. I carry some gloves with me to keep the hands clean. I am not mad anymore because the situation is in my control now...True Confession.

There are arseholes in our British Parliament, who will be "pro garbage" just because they resent spending a single penny on anything that benefits poor people. We have had "austerity" imposed on us as a way to cut any services like refuse collection, libraries, policing etc to the barest minimum, so that there can be tax cuts for wealthy people. Brexit will probably make it worse.

I went around to the local illegal dumping sites and salvaged large containers, cut turf off overgrown sidewalks to make soil, and grew vegetables for the neighbors that called the cops, but ate the food anyway.

Looked like Seth was holding a copy of Calypso, which came out this year. Very good book. He discusses his sister's suicide and his mother's alcoholism. Strangely, he manages to be funny.

After reading about your picking adventures in Calypso and seeing a few friends follow suit, I tried my hand for a few hours a day after work in Japan. Unfortunately, the reason a lot of people toss garbage out over here is because there are some things that just aren't recyclable in Japan: they burn A LOT of plastic, and generally only collect metal and scraps once a month.

You get fined if you get caught, but in the countryside there aren't a lot of people around to catch you so people will take advantage.

In case anyone is interested, you can watch him testifying to the parliamentary committee here: http://bit.ly/2zg1nmT. Oh, and the guy he mentioned giving him a bit of a hard time was the Labour MP for Sheffield (Yorkshire) named Clive Betts.
