The Springfield City Council has passed a measure to ban single use plastic bags.
And that is fine.
But life is getting more and more confusing, wouldn't you agree?
Remember in the old days when we went to the grocery store and someone bagged your groceries in a brown paper bag?
Then the environmentalists came in and told us that we were raising killing trees and ruining the environment.
So then we came up with plastic bags and this was going to be the next best thing since sliced bread.
But then ---here come the same people that were upset with the loss of trees now upset because the plastic bags were hurting the environment.
So we are going bag to brown paper bags or reusable bags.
Who is going to find something wrong with that?
