I'm embarrassed to see St. Paul looking like this when delegates from all over the nation are in town. I've advocated for a change of policy in Minneapolis, but St. Paul needs it, too: tossing a phone book in front of a property which is clearly, undeniably vacant should be considered littering.
But, hey, our Republican friends will tell you there's PLENTY of trees. CUT 'EM DOWN AND MAKE PHONE BOOKS, THEN THROW THOSE PHONE BOOKS IN THE TRASH. Don't worry, earth will grow MORE and there's plenty of natural resources up in ALASKA.
