We already have the "No Guts" awards here. The first winners are Barack Obama and The Oaks at Mill Creek down in Jacksonville.
We are now creating a new award - the Joker award. At first I wanted to call it the a**h**e award, but decided to change the name for this. It fits since the winners of these awards are real jokes.
Our first winner of the Joker award goes to all the jerks who toss their McDonalds bags out the window and onto the street. For some reason McDonalds seems to attract a major pro-literring clientale. I saw two of these on Rickett Road on two consecutive days on my way home from work.
I'm no Sierra Club type, but I am an outdoorsman, a hunter, a fisherman, and a Livingston County native who was here back when Brighton was country. It pisses me off to see more and more litter around here destroying our outdoors. It is really that hard to wait till you get to work or home to properly dispose of your trash?
So a congratuations to the litterers on Rickett Road. You are the first winner of the Joker Award. My only regret is that I didn't see these fools toss the stuff out their window. If I did, I'd make note of their license plate and make a stop at Green Oak PD on my way home. A nice fine could teach a very good lesson. I'm not a busybody, but that's just wrong.
