I'll admit that perhaps I'm being a bit overdramatic, but it is true that the Illinois House of Representatives just passed a ban on Styrofoam or at least what they call the "single-use" Styrofoam. OK, so who's out there using Styrofoam more than once? Please come forward and confess your Styrofoam sins.

What's so bad about Styrofoam?

The Children's Environmental Health Network complains that Styrofoam is too slow to degrade. They say it's partially responsible for global warming and other stuff that sounds important to scientists and other people who probably wear a lot of hemp vests.

Hey, I've got no problem with the ban of Styrofoam. Get rid of it. That's fine. Just put the McRib directly in my hands if you want. I think it's more important to find the fiends who have been using Styrofoam more than once.

Who does that? (*ugh)
