The giving trees

| No Comments

This morning is Plant a Tree day on WBEZ. If you pledge any amount today, they will plant a tree in your name anywhere in the world.

"Anywhere?" said Laura. (We often talk back to the radio in the morning.). "I want them to plant a tree in my back yard."

"I want them to plant a tree in Antarctica," I said. "It's pretty barren down there."

Does this make us jerks?

Also, I would someday like to hear someone on public radio say: "Many of you out there listening have never pledged before. You've been copping a free public radio feel, but now it's time for you to pony up, go all the way, and lose your public radio virginity. Please be generous."
