Cleaned by Capitalism II

Yesterday in his weekly radio address Pres. Bush defended his administration’s record on the environment. In response, the Democrats naturally criticized this record.

While politicians debate, fence, and fume over the state of the environment, countless creative entrepreneurs and workers in the market are busy, every day, making our living environment ever more clean and sanitary. This process is so relentless that we don’t notice it. We’re accustomed to its velocity.

As the President and his opponents dueled publicly about the environment, I was in Home Depot and saw a new toilet-bowl brush. It features a disposable head that you just click off and flush away when you’ve finished cleaning the toilet. The placard that advertised it read “No More Germy Brushes!”

Another small but worthwhile step toward a cleaner, healthier environment!
