The Coast Guard’s New Cutter

It might seem like common sense.  If the driver of a trash truck spots a crime in progress along his route, or a little kid lost, or smoke pouring out of a window, he calls 9-1-1, right? Most probably would, but some might mind their own business, which is part of the reason why the mammoth trash collection and environmental disposal company Waste Managment came up ... read more
