American Waste
3/4/2007 12:24:46 AM
Reading the AD Bio of Abdi-Noor Haji Mohamed inspired this rant.

Every single day in America, we create enough waste food to feed all the starving people in Somalia for a year. All of us Americans need to be ashamed. Yet, in our egotism, we present ourselves as the Leader of the World. How can these other countries ever respect us when we "super-size" our consumption while ignoring those who are starving? I remember when my ship was docked in Yokosuka, Japan, and I was assigned to guard our dockside dumpsters, where hundreds and hundreds of pounds of leftover food was thrown away after every shipboard meal. I was detailed to stop the hungry and homeless Japanese people from getting food out of those dumpsters. I guess I could have been court martialed for negligence of duty, but I became very proficient at looking the other way! Go to the dumpster behind any restaurant, buffet, or fast-food place here in America and you will be shocked at the amount of perfectly good leftover food which is tossed away at closing time. Waste is the American Way! I am not proud of this. When are we going to quit muttering and ranting - and DO something about this?
