What does Kitty have to say?


 


Happy Earth Week!

I was 8 years old on the very first Earth Day, and while I don't remember if we did anything special in my 3rd grade class that day, I do know that the whole ecology movement (as we called it back then) was at the forefront of my kid-conscienceness.. I remember being very moved by that public service announcement with the "Crying Indian," Iron Eyes Cody. And I was a firm believer in not throwing trash on the ground. "Ever Litter Bit Hurts," as the saying went. For some reason, I was convinced that old people were the problem, and that they were ruining our planet because they didn't care about the future of kids like me. I recall writing a letter to the old man who lived across the street from us, warning him to stop his wicked polluting ways! It's not that I'd ever actually seen him littering or anything, he was just the only old person who lived close enough for me to do my little personal "literature drop" on my own. (I wasn't allowed to cross busy streets by myself.) Ever since then I wondered what he thought of my unsigned letter, which I had placed on the edge of his sidewalk, and secured with a rock.  I sure hope it didn't blow away. I'd hate to think it ended up as just another piece of litter! Watch this old public service announcement. Maybe you'll be inspired to start your own ecology movement!

World's Worst iPod: Kajagoogoo "Too Shy"
Gotta love the '80s! Depending on who you're talking to, Kajagoogoo's "Too Shy" is either a song that defines the decade, in a good way, or it's a song that gives all other '80s songs a bad name. It made it to #5 on the charts in...
