Well, how surprised were we to see, nestled in among the articles about Kirkland brand disposable diapers (page 61, they're now selling them in 38-day packs) and tips on furniture-shopping at the warehouse (page 41, go in July and January) -- an article by San Francisco Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi, taking the pro position on why we should ban plastic bags! Ha! Ross is on page 17. (Sorry, their web browser won't let us give you links to actual pages.)

Even better: the piece is actually probably the best-articulated argument we've seen on the issue so far. It made us feel a little guilty that we got our to-go order in.... a plastic bag.
