Scope and content

This is a photo of garbage marring the scenery of mountains and "hollers" in Appalachia. An outsider may blame the region's people or culture, not realizing that some counties, short on financial resources, provide no disposal services and landfills. Domination by the coal industry has kept the tax base too low.
