Why are SOME OC'ers so fixated on picking up other people's trash?
Politically, it is a good move. Also, just being a decent person....

Politically, it's pretty hard for the Brady's to cite the event as something to wet panties and hide under the bed for.

I pick up some other peoples' junk. So? Being aware of it or not, virtually every waking moment of every human being's life is spent dealing with the consequences of other irresponsible/arrogant peoples' actions. One more isn't that big of a deal.

Especially if you can show up the Brady's, who don't do crap for anyone but themselves. Seems like a good enough reason to roll out of bed as any other.

Someone has to do it. The douche bags who profit from it sure won't, they're the ones who trashed the place to begin with...
