    Crow has suggested using "only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where two to three could be required".
    The 45-year-old, who made the comments on her website, has just toured the US on a biodiesel-powered bus to raise awareness about climate change.
    She teamed up with environmental activist Laurie David for the shows. <!-- E SF -->
    The pair targeted 11 university campuses to persuade students to help combat the world's environmental problems.

    "Although my ideas are in the earliest stages of development, they are, in my mind, worth investigating.
    "I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting."

    Laurie David's husband, Seinfeld creator Larry David, also appeared.
    Crow has also commented on her website about how she thinks paper napkins "represent the height of wastefulness".
    She has designed a clothing line with what she calls a "dining sleeve". The sleeve is detachable and can be replaced with another "dining sleeve" after the diner has used it to wipe his or her mouth. The shows involved a short set by the singer, a talk by David and segments of Al Gore's environmental film An Inconvenient Truth.<!-- E BO -->

    Just wait until she needs diapers again. In the meantime, one over her yap would help. I can see it now, coin operated TP dispensers with a time out after one is dispensed. I dare say that public restrooms will have to have a few more thrones installed so one could wait out the time out after a chili and beer dinner.

    As a part of my preps, I've been keeping a log of how long my rolls last. One brand gives me a week a roll. Another brand isn't so good. And she obviously doesn't eat like a red-blooded southern man - I recently had one 'jumbo roll' that made it only ONE DAY! Must've been some 'off' meat . . .

    So Cheryl's TP Police would've had me up against the wall . . . [LMAO]

    Hmmm . . . thought of a good term for them. "Crapper Coppers". [touchdown]

    We either cut down the trees or use one of these and waste a little more water. Much cleaner than the old TP wipey

    I think...it started as a joke?

    From what I understand the Media ran away with a joke that she made. Who knows....

    Sense of humor ...it may have come from a Seinfield episode where Elaine wanted 3 sheets of TP from the person in the stall next to her....? (I don't have a square to spare..)

    Who knows...

    Oftentimes I wonder about the media as much as I do about some of the people I meet daily.... ;-)

    A joke would be my first inclination, but it seems that she really was serious...... and stupid.

    I was hoping she wasn't that stupid...

    I really hate that the older I get the less and less I trust....I don't wanna be like that....it just happens...


    Thanks EL..

    I read that it was a joke on her website...

    I think I'll give up reading.... ;-)

    Everywhere we went today, we were asked by everyone from Congresspeople to Capitol Hill police about the "Rove incident." To set the record straight, the other night, we approached Mr. Rove at a dinner designed specifically to encourage conversations between people from different worlds. We were riding a wave of excitement having just come from talking to college students across the country about global warming. Obviously, we were very surprised that Mr. Rove found discussing such an important issue to be insulting. However, rather than continuing to focus on the encounter itself, can we now focus on the urgent need to act on global warming? We would welcome the opportunity to engage directly with the Bush administration in a constructive conversation about solutions to the global warming crisis.
    And by the way guys, the toilet paper thing...it was a JOKE!!

    CRC, most entertainers are idiots as far as I am concerned. They are good at entertaining, but for the most part that is it. I have a lot more respect for them when they ONLY try to entertain me, and do not try to TEACH me. Let's leave that to others, not the "artsy-fartsy" crowd. They are busy putting flowers in their hair and dreaming about rainbows.

    I know, I know....

    I guess I've been called Pollyanna most of my life for a reason....That, and "Little Mother to The World".....

    I just get pissed off when people let me down...and it happened in my personal life as recently as yesterday ...so I guess I was hoping it wasn't true...

    Live, and Learn...always.

    Oh well....

    and again...thanks for the words....[winkthumb]
