    My sister has a bad habit of leaving stuff on when she leaves. Irks my soul especially lights and the TV. I guess the walls are scared of the dark and need entertainment. Most black people I talk to can care less about air pollution and global warming. If it’s not directly affecting their lives much thought isn’t giving to it even though their children and grandchild will be burning up with that missing ozone layer. I live in L.A. and they have a Farmers Market every Sunday so fresh veggies fruits shouldn’t be that hard to obtain if you really want it. But in this technological world when most everything is injected with foreign things and has some side effect, everything now can kill unless you live on some far away remote island.
