Sheryl "One-Square" Crow

It's now big news that singer Sheryl Crow only uses one square of toilet paper per sitting in an effort to stave off deforestation*. But John Stossel debunked the deforestation myth a long time ago and claimed there is more forest in the U.S. now than there was 80 years ago. Which means we are efficient at replacing what we use, and the one-square gesture is pointless, not to mention gross (tho' I bet Crow uses a bidet).

But why even use one square when you can use none? Crow has an eco-friendly clothing line that features detachable napkin-alternative "dining sleeves" for wiping one's mouth ; why not also include pants with a removable wiping hatch? She can call them the "Can't-Spare-a-Square" pair. As my personal contribution to the environmental cause, I'll let her have that idea free of charge.

[* I guess that means men are, by nature, more environmentally-friendly than women, since they require less TP.]

As progressives march along towards the glorious future, we start to lose the indicators of being civilized and don the appearance of being barbarians.

Makes the term "progressive" rather ironic, doesn't it?
