Radical environmentalists are good for the economy. A city employee told the recycling commandant that he had a use for some chain link fencing that had been dropped off. “We’re recycling that!”, she shrieked, blocking her treasure with her torso until it could be mechanically loaded, transported by road and rail to a steel mill, melted in a coal-fired furnace, poured into pigs, beaten into billets, rolled into rods, drawn into wire, and manufactured into…why, chain link fencing. Thank God Earth Mother he wasn’t permitted to pitch it into his pickup, drive it home, and r-r-ruse it. Cumbaya.
