commented on Trees Are People, Too
As someone who worked with the homeless for many years, I can tell you that every year we were inundated by bags and bags of hats and scarves knitted by very sweet and generous people. I can promise that no one is going to go cold this winter because the trees are wearing sweaters. Now, if someone was wrapping trees in brand new pairs of underwear, socks, bras, winter coats in all sizes and sneakers (the things shelters really need you to donate), then we'd have an issue.

@5 Also, many of us in the Pacific NW are pretty vitamin D deficient. It's not a bad idea to have your doctor check your vitamin levels the next time you do a yearly check up. Then they can prescribe the right amount.

Agreed! I know it's not the point, but DAMN! What kind of Art Director lets a book go to print with typography looking like that? The kerning alone almost lost me my breakfast.
