Letter to the Editor
To the editor:
If you see Santa, please give him a copy of the “Alcoholics Anonymous,” or what the people in A.A. call the “Big Book,” so that he can give it to elves that live in the North Pole.
I say this because I think they may be battling alcoholism.
I walk my dog a lot in Crestwood and Sunset Hills, and I am dumbfounded by the amount of airplane bottles of wine and liquor I continuously find and pick up on my walks.
I do not see the amounts I see here anywhere else.
I am not saying airplane bottles are the worst possible things I can find or that we — St. Louis as a whole — don’t have a littering problem, but I cannot be the only one that sees this on our streets.
The pace of littering is outpacing my little bit of effort.
I ask you all to please just pick up one more piece of trash than you throw out of your car a day.
