Not In My Backyard!

Back in elementary school, we studied garbage and recycling and landfills and stuff — specifically, how to reduce the amount of waste going into landfills so as to avoid having to construct new ones, because nobody wants a landfill in their backyard. (These people are called NIMBYs, for “Not In My Back Yard.”)

Well, I wouldn’t mind a landfill so much as I would mind a 2000-ton pile of burning cow manure that I’m sure smells just angelic.
