Cause And Effect

A while back was the New York City Marathon. I happened to be walking next to it with M. near 1st Avenue and she watched the runners (joggers/walkers..) going by with interest. We were a bit downstream of one of those places where they hand out water in paper cups, and evidently the throng of runners had been throwing the empty cups on the street as they finished, to the extent that by this point deep in the race the street was literally covered in trampled paper cups for hundreds of yards after the water station.
M. observed, “This isn’t a good place to run because there’s too much trash on the ground.”
She was right, of course.
