More trash

The mayor of Buenos Aires said today that if the trash situation in the city does not improve within 30 days, he will consider it a personal failure.

He's been in office almost a year, so it's hard to say why he's chosen now to get serious about it. Maybe because the heat of summer aggravates the situation. You can pretty much see the stink lines radiating cartoon-style from the piles of trash.

One good thing about the arctic weather we're having in Chicago -- the snow covers up the leaflets, beer bottles, etc. that plague our block. It looks all winter wonderlandish.
