Shredder Offers Good Riddance To 2009
LINDA WERTHEIMER, host:
Good morning. I'm Linda Wertheimer.
New Yorkers hoping to scrap the worst parts of 2009 gathered around an industrial-sized shredder in Times Square Yesterday. The third Annual "Good Riddance Day" is part of the Times Square New Year's Eve celebration. Visitors shredded bills, letters, newspapers and smashed larger items with a sledge hammer. Ben Winnick(ph) shredded an article about the New York Giants loss that ended their playoff possibilities.
It's MORNING EDITION.
