Earth Day

I have a problem with Earth Day, and I bet you're not surprised.

We go nuts for one day, and then it's over.  People quickly revert back to bad habits, and wasteful ways of the past.

Like everything else, Earth Day has become politicized, and that's most unfortunate.

Organizations, like NBC, become preachy and shove it down your throat.

Am I perfect?  Not by a long shot.  I probably could shut down the computer more often.  I do some gas wasting during recreational drives and photo expeditions.  On the other hand, I recycle what I can, and most of my light bulbs are CFL's.

I'm trying to find a clever way to say every day should be earth day, but it's just not happening.  Simple is best.  Happy Earth Day!
