Green Living by Janet Marchant: Greening Your Planet's Natural Satellites

Guess what: according to my calendar, Alameda is getting a brand-new moon tonight. "Hooray!" you say, but wait! As we all know, the moon is made of green cheese, and it's awfully wasteful to just throw away anything that has "green" in its name.

Just think how much better off our planet would be if we found a way to recycle all of those old moons. For example, we could use an old moon for a big pizza pie! After that green cheese has sat around for a month or so, it's probably more like aged mozzarella, which is one of my favorite pizza toppings.

I'm suddenly feeling hungry for some reason. I think I need to go and make a phone call, but now that I've got you started, I'll bet you can come up with all kinds of other great solutions for cleaner, greener use of our planet's satellites.

A great column, as usual. We must be extremely careful when doing any manipulation with the moon. It is especially susceptible to hitting your eye. I believe the condition is called "Amore."
