Walk the talk

It's easy to complain about litter on the streets, and not so easy to do something about it. But about 30 people showed up this morning with brooms and garbage bags and walked the talk. Among them, at right, were Judge Tom Gladden, left, and John Ullom, husband of Washington Councilwoman Virginia Ullom.

Although a little chilly at first, it turned out to be a beautiful morning, made much more so with the satisfaction of doing something useful for the community. There's talk about doing this every three months. That would be great, but it certainly would help if the city could come up with a more effective plan to use the street sweeper and its street crew to do some of the work.
