imply in my 4/18 letter that kids are the only ones who litter.
Those who do have undoubtedly learned that behavior from adults.

Mr. Cegelske makes a good point about tourists viewing our roadside garbage. My sister visited Ketchikan in 2002 and noticed the problem almost immediately as we drove on the highway. I have visited otherwise beautiful cities that were horribly littered and found myself thinking I did not care to return to such places.
First and foremost, we should be proud of the beautiful area in which we live and strive to keep it that way, not necessarily for the visitors, but for ourselves, too. I know I sound like a fanatic about this subject. That's because I am.
