My Turn, Your Turn: Litter-Pigs

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - I hate litter.  I hate seeing it along the road and I hate the thought of taxpayer money being used to clean it up. 

I get angry when I see someone deliberately toss trash out a car window.  You have to wonder what kind of person thinks the whole world is their trash can? 

Well I have a few names for these people - loser is one of them.  And I can tell you I think Litterbug is way too kind. 

In fact, that might be part of the problem. We've used such a cute little name to describe a disgusting act. 

A person on our staff suggested a better name.  How about Litter-PIGS?  Litter-pigs has a creepy feel and it doesn't sound as cute.  Will being called a pig rather than a bug make a difference?  I don't know but it's worth a try.  I just hope the real pigs don't feel insulted.

That's my turn.  Now it's your turn.  To comment on this segment or anything else, email me, here.
