On a per-capita basis, it seems as if Americans are doing far less littering than 40 or 50 years ago. At that time, an open car window was often looked at as a kind of trash dispenser. Now, some still regard it as such but it seems the majority stow their trash while in a car and save it for the next convenient trash receptacle.

Meanwhile, people on the front lines of the litter war are struggling to come up with messages that work. Joel Hunt, a public information officer with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), admits that despite public relations campaigns, littering in Ohio remains at an all-time high.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Robin Williams, a brilliant shapeshifter who could channel his frenetic energy into delightful comic characters like "Mrs. Doubtfire" or harness it into richly nuanced work like his Oscar-winning turn in "Good Will Hunting," died Monday in an apparent suicide. He was 63.

Williams was pronounced dead at his San Francisco Bay Area home Monday, according to the sheriff's office in Marin County, north of San Francisco. The sheriff's office said the preliminary investigation shows the cause of death to be a suicide due to asphyxia.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A witness in the investigation of Ohio State's marching band says it's "absurd" to suggest fired director Jonathan Waters was dismissive of sexual harassment.

Waters was fired July 24 after a two-month investigation concluded he knew about but failed to stop a "sexualized culture" of rituals including students marching partially clad and performing sexually themed stunts that led to sometimes explicit nicknames.
