2018/04/21(土) 時差ぼけ1日目
今日、無事に1日目が終わった。それほど不便さは感じず。一人だからだろう。(笑)今回の日本行は、そらもう、いろんなことがあった。まず、私が日本に着いたころ、無事に私のごみ拾いに関する投書が地元の新聞(4月5日付)に載ったので、それを記録のために残しておこう。
To the Editor:

I found the letter from B M regarding trash in D very encouraging. From my nearly five years of experience picking up trash in the streets, parking lots and ditches of D, besides stopping littering, of course, I would like to suggest the following:

1. The most important thing is to secure trash, especially plastic bags, so that they can’t be blown away by the wind. Use bags to collect trash to put in home bins. Insist that owners, users, and operators of dumpsters keep them closed.
2. Before mowing, check the yard and pick up trash so that you don’t mow over it, breaking it into pieces and spreading the pieces everywhere.

One thing that I was very frustrated by was when a fast food restaurant on L H removed the trash can from their storefront as if they were claiming ownership of the right to throw away trash. Previously, I had used that can to throw away the trash I picked up in their parking lot. My cleaning the parking lot was actually helping their business, wasn’t it? We need to promote a better spirit of philanthropy among D business owners.

Another practice I do not understand is when bushes and trees start collecting windblown trash, instead of cleaning up the trash, some people cut them down. We should clean up the trash on and around living things, not killing the living things themselves.

I believe that trash invites more trashy people to town. I already notice some signs of trashy people in town, such as those who leave heavy wet used diapers everywhere, worse than regular litter for me to pick up. In addition to causing a public health hazard, what message does it send to children of such parents?

Believing in the power of education, we should send a message to trashy people that this town is not the place for them. I believe that we have the opportunity to live in a beautiful parklike, clean area throughout D, once each of us pays a little attention to the environment we live, work, and play in every day.
日本へ行って気づいたことーごみが落ちていない。きれい。さすが。アメリカは汚い。私の投書をどれだけの人が読んで、ああ、あのホームレスみたいな女の名前はこれか、と気づいたかはわからないけれど、一語一句変更されることなく掲載された。そういえば、大リーグに移籍した大石だか大西だか、二刀流の人も、マウンドでごみ拾いしたんだって。。そう、日本人のごみに対する態度は誇りをもって世界に広めるべきである。この国のドアホと親友ぶって、影で裏切られるよりはるかに意義深いことである!!!(笑)
