Spin Control

Earth Day, from 2 perspectives

At Spin Control, we get a wide range of suggestions from e-mail, Twitter and Facebook on a wide variety of topics most days. But seldom do we get something with such a sharp dichotomy on the topic of the day, which is Earth Day.

We got word of a contest from Press the President, a group which describes itself as "a worldwide forum for unfiltered debate about U.S. issues that affect the globe." It's sponsoring a photo contest this month for people to show how they are helping the environment this spring, and even has some helpful tips, such as eat vegetarian one day a week, bring your own cup to the coffee stand rather than using one of their paper ones, or give somebody that Christmas present you don't like rather than throwing it out, or planting a garden. (Obviously their worldwide forum includes some real intellectual heavyweights and novel thinkers.)

Press the Prez, meet Clint Didier, Republican candidate for Congress in Washington's 4th Congressional District, who tweeted his favorite thing to do for Earth Day.

Just a hunch, but we're guessing Didier's photo wouldn't win anything in the photo contest.
