I've got an idea for re-purposing plastic grocery bags. At least in the affected parts of East Village, there should be recycling bins for plastic bags placed strategically in parts of the village. Making them available for those that choose to poop where ever in lieu of access to traditional plumbing.....Yuck!
Less crude is the people version of a doggie bag, or disposable toilet!!!! It has handles, so just poop in the bag, scoop up the handles, and throw your shit away!!!
Wouldn't this be a reasonable solution to a problem? Also it will help keep a percentage of plastic bags from polluting our oceans. They are now weighed down and unmoved by the wind.

and on another note it, for years i've thought that having a native american on a tootsie roll tootsie pops wrapper would fetch a free sucker if the wrapper was brought back to the store, now i found that the indian and the star on the wrappers has never meant a damn thing. not to tootsie roll. if i were tootsie i'd honor it (and just make smaller suckers .....)
