COA grads mark rite with recycling

The College of the Atlantic held a "garbage-free" graduation ceremony on Saturday. This is a commendable thing.

I couldn't help commenting on one student's observation:

"It's incredible," John Deans, 21, said. "We're really putting our mouth where we're walking."

Deans, a COA junior, volunteered to help coordinate recycling efforts as students lugged clothes, books and other detritus of college life out of their dorm rooms Saturday.

Some advice for senior year: take an English class, especially one that points out the pitfalls of mixed metaphors.
