Those were just a few of the comments Marin Magazine received
in response to our column “Talking Weeds and Trash” (POV,
July 2012), about the unsightly roadsides, particularly along
Highway 101, in Marin. No other topic — gun violence, the death
penalty or global warming — generated such reader response.
Realizing we had hit on a hot-button topic, we decided
to explore further to find out why such messy conditions
exist and what, if anything, can be done about them.
