BEHIND THE REAMS

    I find it hard to believe that we won't run out of drinkable water sooner rather than later.

    I come from Joplin, No. We have a restaurant named Instant Karma with very good food where the owner doesn't believe in using plastic straws so he uses paper straws and you have to ask for them. He also owns another restaurant named the Eagles where I'm sure he does the same thing. He doesn't believe in filling the landfill with plastic.
