Today In History: Litterbug.

On this day in 1979, the hamlet of Esperance in Western Australia fined the United States Government $400 for littering.

Despite having Uncle Sam dead to rights (I mean, nobody else was dropping flaming space station debris across the Southern Hemisphere at that moment) Esperance has been stiffed on the fine to this day. They should put out a bench warrant.

We could pay the fine with the savings we get fom Cuba's failure to cash our checks for leasing Gitmo. (Legend has it that only one of the rent checks was actually cashed since the revolution.)
