|Watch out for that pothole!|
By misinterpreting a Chicago Sun-Times headline, the NRDC blog says that there is "broad support" for a plastic bag ban in the city.
Wrong. However, if plastic bags are banned in Chicago, I believe there will be broad support to bring them back.
I work on Chicago's North Side and most of my client base lives in the city. They care most about: Cutting taxes, improving crappy schools, fighting crime, and repairing pockmarked and warped streets. What's easier? Fixing these problems or banning plastic bags? That is what Ald. Proco "Joe" Moreno (1st Ward) is trying to achieve in the Chicago City Council. If that name sounds familiar, he's the alderman who made a national name for himself with his battles with Chick-fil-A over gay marriage.
I will think about that and plastic bags if my car breaks an axle on a Chicago pothole.
