Sitting down at my desk this morning, I noticed that it was covered in large mounds of paper. Post it notes, blue print-outs, pink print-outs, you get the idea. I thought, I'll get to it later, after the holidays (and my oh-so-important blogging). And then I read this:
"A Bronx man trapped for two days under an avalanche of newspapers, magazines and books was rescued by firefighters and neighbors yesterday ...The victim, Patrice Moore, 43, of 1991 Morris Avenue, near Tremont Avenue, was found shortly after 1 p.m. in a 10-by-10-foot room crammed with paper and other detritus that completely filled it, except for a small corner where he slept, neighbors and city officials said."
I am now recycling like a banshee.
