Dear Barack Obama,
You are the 44th President of the United States!
But anyway, I have a problem.
Around stores and on my school playground people are littering all over the place.
I help Mother Nature by picking it up and either recycling it or throwing it away.
But that's another problem.
Mother doesn't want me wandering around picking up trash to help Mother Nature.
She says I can't clean up after everyone.
I don't know what to do to help Mother Nature if I can't pick up trash.

So, Mr. President, now you know...the real threat to our environment isn't deforestation or rampant industrialization. It's the vengeful Mom sparring with Mother Nature with one hand, while trying to get four kids and a cartful of groceries into the car with the other. Choose your side carefully.
