BIT for the record

BIT was recently asked to provide a statement by w/r/t a disturbing situation in San Francisco. A portion of that statement appears in a Baltimore Sun article today. For the sake of being complete, this is what we say officially, for the record, and all that:
"We don't condemn the use of alternative grocery recepticles per se. Rather, we are concerned with the preservation of naturally occurring phenomena in city tree branches most commonly associated with plastic grocery bags. In that light, the situation in San Francisco is certainly troubling as it threatens to make extinct the public (and very natural) art we promote at Bags In Trees. It's clear that news of this pre-emptive strike on bags in trees by a few San Francisco tree-hugging, bag-hating fanatics, points to an environmentalist agenda aimed at taking art away from decent people. And that's just not right."
However, the most disturbing thing from Mr. Kasper's article is the outing of himself as well as naming two other Baltimoreans who have apparently been brainwashed by the extremist ideology of the NYRP and have formed a sleeper cell in our own fair city, taking it upon themselves to use make shift bag snaggers to de-bag Baltimore's trees. Bag lovers unite!

Odd that he'd ask for our point of view, and then declare that he's against it. Seems a BIT confrontational, doesn't it?

Nah, he's just being fair and balanced.

Absolutely classic!

Pinpoint satire at its finest!

This is the most funniest thing I seen all year!

I was born in Baltihood and I always knew the place was on the up and up, with the arts and finery and all.

Any particular favorite bags? Mine are Wal-mart bags, but that's me.

I am going to peruse your past blog entries...
