No AM. No Metro.

I'm renewing my crusade to have the AM and Metro newspaper-hander-outers that plague the underground passage between the L and the 1/2/3 eliminated. This video was taken just outside the subway entrance at Lex and 42nd. Please take note of the hander-outer properly disposing of his day's excess (several bundles) papers in the recycling bin.

In an effort to bolster my argument that we should banish AM and Metro to the "land of wind and ghosts," I'm asserting that these publications have swollen carbon footprints. I'm glad they appear to use recycling bins for leftovers, but let there be no doubt that the energy and fuel used to produce and transport their product grossly outpaces their efforts to reduce such waste.
