Joyce Coomer: Some litter I wonder about

Joyce M. Coomer writes:

I've been walking some the past month or so around the downtown area and notice quite a bit of trash littering the sidewalks and streets, and some in yards. While I deplore the habit of throwing trash out of a vehicle window, I do understand that basic human laziness is the underlying source of this despicable habit.

What does puzzle me are the odd items of clothing that are scattered hither and yon along with the litter. Gloves and head coverings could've fallen out of a pocket or been blown off someone's head so don't think too much about those. However, I do wonder about the socks and underwear that are sometimes scattered along the roadside. How did those get there???
