Rice Students Upset About Kleenex

Students at Rice University have persuaded campus officials to quit buying Kleenex products in favor of products that include recycled material and exclude material from trees cut from North America's largest ancient forest — the Boreal forest that stretches from Alaska through Canada.

I guess these students have so much time on their hands that they can take time away from their studies to protest.

I wonder how long they would last in college if the people who are paying for their education took time out from their jobs to act in a similar manner.

Wait until they get out in the real world and find out this nonsense will affect their jobs.

Perhaps they can wipe their snottly little noses with the sleeve of their jackets.
