Shame Meter

Let’s paint a picture of just one of our East End neighbors (Ickenham Limited) consuming 16,418,076 gallons of our precious groundwater to keep their roses in bloom year round [“Water Hogs Of The East End,” Residence, August 4]: Stacked end to end, 16 million-plus standard 1 gallon paint cans would circle the entire planet. At the equator.

A shame meter should be inserted in place of the water meter.
