There has always been something grotesque about the idea that they are. But to embrace that idea in the #MeToo era is not just grotesque, but clueless. It suggests that you slept through a reckoning that has shifted the Zeitgeist.
So somebody please tell Ernst & Young to wake up and smell the 2019.
Hi there – it’s me, your Hominy Creek Trash Trout. Some people call me TT for short. My job is to sit in the Hominy Creek and patrol for litter before it can reach the French Broad River. Did you know that I collected over 500 pounds or trash in the first 6 months of my life?

As she later told biographer Sarah Bradford, after crossing the Pennsylvania state boundary line in September 1849, “I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person. There was such a glory over everything; the sun came like gold through the trees, and over the fields, and I felt like I was in Heaven.”
