Dan Rodricks proclaims his annoyance with those of us who walk out of grocery stores with plastic bags ("Overpriced popcorn, O's early-season tease and other annoyances," April 26). I'd wager that the majority of us who offend Mr. Rodricks in this way are dog owners.
I have three big ones, and they leave big messes on lawns. If you want me to pick up after them, I need plastic bags to do it. Sorry if it's ecologically unsound, but I'm not about to use a cloth bag and wash the bag.
