Some of my colleagues in the traveling press corps scoffed, but I could care less. With the Democratic Convention going environmentally green, I decided not to take any chances.

That's why I stopped off at a 7-11 in downtown Chicago and picked up a four-pack of Charmin.

If you haven't read my previous posts, you might be surprised to learn that Denver hotels are tossing out their environmentally unfriendly plastic room keys in favor of wooden room keys.

Rumor has it that Jethro and Uncle Jed spent weeks whittling those keys.

I wonder how many trees the environmentalists had to sacrifice to make us environmentally correct?
