Here's an opinion from my colleague Ivan Lerner about San Francisco's recent regulation on plastic bags. The article, titled "Rally round the bag" was published on the Endpoint section of ICIS Chemical Business magazine (January 28, 2008).
San Francisco has become the first US city to ban plastic bags, meaning that litter will no longer be a problem there.
Oh, and the Golden Gate Bridge is for sale, too!

Banning plastic bags will not stop people from being morons and filthy slobs.
