In the United States there has been a program available from the individual state highway people that will allow individuals or groups to “Adopt a Highway” and in doing so, these individuals or groups will get a vest and a sign signifying that they are part of the program. Essentially the program invites people to look after and clean litter from a specific portion of a highway. It is often families, companies or organizations that do this. The only thing they get is as I mentioned the protective vest for use when doing the job, and maybe some recognition from the sign posted on the highway.

But here is the good news. It seems that the KKK or Ku KLux Klan in Georgia wanted to get their sign up and do a bit of good, supposedly. But the powers that decide these things said “NO” . They didn’t think this would be a good thing for Georgia to advertise. Racism still exists in the south, as in many places in North America. Whatever the reason was, I think it was a good idea to deny the KKK the opportunity to wander the highways with there day glo vests on, and collect stuff from the highways in a southern state, under the guise of being good citizens.

Good on you Georgia!
