    The dozens of men, women and children buried by a garbage dump that
    collapsed in Manila today is a grim reminder of the multiplicity of
    tragic consequences caused by the waste we produce. True, most of
    the victims earned their living by scavenging through the garbage
    at the Payatas dump. Surely there are other ways to provide food
    and shelter for the impoverished in third world nations.
