not all environmentalists are pessimists.
my neighbor, stilton wilbur, is such a character.
just the other day i saw stilt struggling to empty cans into one of his recycle bins.
i struck up some conversation.
i asked, hey stilt how are your recyclables going?
he said, not many cans yet robby but the glass is half full.
i thought, well now, that makes him an optimist by all measures i know.
i also thought, i'd wish he'd stop calling me robby.
