And then this was discovered.

Hundreds of thousands of tonnes of glass are being stockpiled and landfilled instead of being recycled, threatening to seriously damage the community's faith in the billion-dollar recycling industry.

Why do we even bother?

I used to be a strong supporter of recycling, back when I would buy and drink a case of Coors beer in cans, and I would take the case of empty aluminum (sorry, aluminium) cans back to the liquor store when I bought the next case. Then I went on a tour of Coors factory in Golden, 20 miles south of Boulder, and I was disappointed to learn that the factory didn't use recycled aluminum to manufacture new cans for beer, because the recycled metal was not pure enough. Therefore, the only thing the company did with recycled aluminum was to use for ash trays that they sold in the gift shop.

As a barn cat adoptee, she has always depended on the kindness of strangers . . .

ON A SEMI-RELATED NOTE [from my favorite political cartoonist]

All of the above is depressing, and we're about to depress you even more. But stick with us - we think we've got a way to make it all better at the end!

Today, daughter Jarlsberg, who is as good and sweet a soul as any ever put on this Earth, encountered an unconscious kitten baking under the hot Oklahoma sun. She tried to get the poor little creature to a veterinarian in time...but it was too late.

This was painful to her, and to her parents. What the hell kind of world is this, anyway?!

Well...maybe it's a pretty good one. Because even though she couldn't save that kitten, daughter Jarlsberg subsequently gave money to some charities that will help other little animals.

And then we did the same - writing an accompanying little note that in the kitten's too short life it had still made a difference by inspiring others to act.

Not only did it make us feel a little better, it sort of delighted us to think that all of the Left-wing loonies who are currently rock solid sure that we're Nazis would be stunned to know that we're really soft-hearted animal lovers who (unlike the Left) are willing to give up our OWN hard-earned cash to help rather than simply demanding that others do it.

The charity we support is called the Abandoned Animal Project, affiliated with the Texas-based Vet Ranch. They're genuinely great people who make wonderful Youtube videos like this one...

Why on Earth did a sad, then uplifting story turn into a tirade against the left?

Such is the state of the Left/Right divide in America after eight years of Obama enforced identity politics. Not to worry, I believe we will Make America Great Again *chuckle*.

Until then, Stella will entertain and amuse us . . .

Cat in the pot.
