Of warm sun-shining sweetness
It looks nice out there.
There's a common theme to this week's schedule: it has continuously left me with little time for myself. That, of course, means, that I have even littler time for the blog. I'd like to say something like, "Don't worry, next week will be better!" but that would be nothing more than a lie. An untruthful lie.
Anywho, today's missive is non-existent. However, Today's Joke is quite existent:
Rybak pushing all U.S. cities away from bottled water
Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak and other mayors from around the country are urging all U.S. cities to stop spending tax money on bottled water, and instead drink from the tap.
A resolution to that effect has been written and will be presented Saturday in the Environment Committee of the U.S. Conference of Mayors meeting in Miami.
The resolution, submitted by Rybak and the mayors of 14 other cities, cites a host of reasons why cities should use their own municipal water, rather than bottled water.
Coca-Cola, Pepsi and the American Beverage Association have all increased their lobbying against the campaign away from bottled water. Last year, Coca-Cola and the association passed out fliers at the Conference of Mayors that argued against a resolution to study the impact of bottled water on municipal waste. This year, they've taken more extreme measures, including filling the homes of those at the conference with plastic bottles, poisoning the tap water of U.S. cities involved in the resolution, and leaving the severed heads of local water commissioners in the mayors' beds.
