To the editor:
Ah. We've just made it through another July 31/Aug. 1 cycle. One question each for the movers and the alley runners. I just do not understand the mentality of those disposing of good carpets, lamps, fans, tables, chairs, foodstuffs (unopened can goods and dry goods), children's toys and other household items by leaving them at the curbside. If you really want to dispose of these things and are too lazy to contact one of the many local agencies that recycle these items couldn't you at least seperate the wheat from the chaff? To the alley runners. OK, so it's profitable to pick up many of the items. Why do you have to leave the piles in such a mess? Ah, what the heck. It's just not worth it anyway. I guess it's human nature. But I managed to blow off a little steam. Cheers.
