plastic bags

Here's a Catch-22 of environmentalism and urban living:

Richmond, like most cities, requires owners to pick up after their dogs. Generally speaking, this requires the use of plastic bags, which I have been running out of lately. This means I either get rid of Reilly (not going to happen) or bring some of my groceries home in cloth bags and some of them home in plastic bags.

I mentioned this to the checkout guy at Kroger today, and he said, "There's a place in this world for plastic bags."
