I hate to bring up a point I have raised before, but this list is again
mixing up responsibilities between different levels of govt. For example:
Garbage disposal (clearly a local govt. job) and river-cleanup (state and
possibly Central govt. job).

Once we start mixing these up, IP will lose intellectual clarity. I think we
need to discuss this matter.
