Faux-Green Symbolism at the Inauguration

A New York Times article illustrates why it sometimes is hard to have warm feeling about national environmental organizations. Does it really matter if the carpet is recycled?

I suppose the influence must be exerted in the halls of power, but sheesh, Bo Derek, spokeswoman for the environment? She did hang with Tarzan, it's true.

One wonders about all the people buying bottled water, do they trust this as safer than tap water, are they afraid to drink from a public faucet. I remember when we had water fountains in all the cities for the public to drink from, never did hear of a plague.

And now we have tons of these cheap plastic bottles littering our nation.
