An idea re discourtesies

One of the complaints concerns butts left on the ground. It would be great if they could come up with some pocket-size container to carry them home (or to a street's wastebasket) for proper disposal, the way dog owners are required to look after their pets. (I'm laughing wondering if I only thought of that analogy because of prior DP remarks re scatology.) Anyway, what I had in mind was some thin, inexpensive fire-proof cigar/cigarette butt case - or maybe a variety of styles, from something inexpensive and "kitschy" in tin depicting a King's Cigar/Liberty logo on one side and inscribed with LIBERTY messages on the other... to something expensive and more discreet in sterling. Creates good will, serves as a conversation starter, helps raise awareness of the company logo when left on the table, and the company makes a small profit on each. Perhaps an additional butt case could be carried along in a briefcase or inside jacket pocket. ["Do you smoke? Here, I have an extra..."] Cigarette smokers would surely be interested in such a product as well. So might Liberty-minded non-smokers who could use the tins to carry a stick of gum or other thin personal effects such as a couple business cards. Well, it's a thought.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
