RE: [GreenYes] Bryant Gumbel
Could you please send me more information on exactly what Bryant Gumbel said
and in what context? I didn't watch the segment and I am curious as to why
he what context he was speaking.

Thank you,

Sequoia

Unfortunately, we do periodically see more affluent people discard the tree
with everything left on it during garbage collection after christmas.  This
usually happens when they are tired of the same old decorations after using
them many years.  (Does this happen elsewhere or is this just a local
phenomenon?)  Since we take the trees to the compost facility, we tell our
citizens to remove all ornaments AND the tree stands.  The stands make up
the most aggravating and recurring item left on trees put out for
collection.  Whether Gumbel's remark was joking or not, it doesn't help the
collection cause, either.

Hi GRRN'ers:  It's nice to note that Gumbel's show is among the lowest rated

news shows currently on the air.  As a matter of fact the CBS Morning Show 
was in danger of being cancelled earlier this year.  Still, I wonder if he 
was perhaps joking about throwing the lights out with the tree.  Most 
people--we trust, hope and pray--have better sense than to throw out a tree 
full of perfectly good Christmas lights.  If they don't, a retraction by CBS

isn't going to help them.

Happy holidays all!
