35W document dump: Who's responsible for today's highway litter?
This is just the beginning of the massive trail of litter.
If you've driven on 35W in the past few hours, you undoubtedly noticed the thousands of white papers strewn along the sides of the highway as it approaches Minneapolis.
At first, it looks like perhaps a protester tossed a box of leaflets off the pedestrian bridge. But then the litter goes on for so long that it becomes clear that it must have come streaming out of a truck.
We pulled over to the side of the highway to pick up some of the documents and see what they were. It turns out they are some kind of store receipts (from a vendor?). Take a look at these photos and let us know in the comments if you have any theories.
