After being raised in a very progressive university town in Montana and then spending 15 years in Seattle I moved to an old mill town in Maine so my wife could be closer to her family. I had two things happen today that are making me crazy. First I contacted the local solid waste facility and ask if I could have another recycling container as I can never fit all of my recyclables in the small one they provide. They told me they are only allowed 500 containers for a city of 30,000 people. They suggested I throw the rest of my recyclables in the trash. I was furious, I have been trying to teach my seven-year-old to be a steward of the earth. Then I went to the largest grocery store in town and after looking in front of the pharmacy asked them if they had contraceptive foam. They looked at me puzzled and said they didn't think they carried it. I said" no wonder you sell 16 different kinds of pregnancy tests". The three people were not impressed. Am I losing it or what?
