Rainsong - no debate from me on the plastic bags! I agree with you.
Although I will say that when I buy chicken (or any other raw meat), I do prefer to put it in the store's plastic bags than in one of my reusable bags, just in case any of the raw meat juices leak out.
I can see Wrose's and Marge's side of the issue too though - the plastic bags do come in handy if you have something that needs to be disposed of easily (i.e. dog poop) and it's nice not having to spend money on something for that (like the way Wrose uses them to line her trash cans).
I guess my opinion on them is torn between Rainsong's point of using petroleum for better uses, and Wrose's feelings of being punished because of other people being irresponsible.
