From Germany, With Love

Gavin has his heart in the right place, says a visiting fellow from Germany who has a couple words to describe the recycling habits of San Franciscans: weak and sauce. Pleasantly surprised was she to find that we actually do have blue and black bins, but her admiration gave way to dismay when she saw how much waste we create anyway. Perhaps, she wonders aloud, the mayor is right to employ recycling patrol: "Sometimes it takes drastic measures to spotlight a drastic situation." [SF Gate]
