Ban the leafblowers!!
Modern inventions like digital technology and appliances have made our lives more productive and allow us to amazing things which advance our culture. And then there are inventions like leaf blowers that show how lazy and environmental destructive we can become. Instead of mulching leaves into fertilizer for our lawns and gardens we put them into plastic bags to be taken to a landfill to stay underground for who knows how long.
We have traded the memories of Fall as being a time of raking leaves, pumpkin carving, trick or treating and apple cider for the whine of the leaf blower. Enjoy those other things until someone invents something to make them annoying too.
