The Lorax

I just read The Lorax to the kids, and realized something: The Lorax speaks for the trees, but he doesn't do anything for them.

The Lorax is a lawyer, you see. :-)

(Because I'd not say he was a herald...)

I hope he's not a herald; he gets very, very hoarse!

... more to the point, though, the Lorax shouldn't have to pick up after the Once-ler's mistakes. It's up to the Once-ler to do it, but he never does. He barely even understands there's a problem. Eventually, the Once-ler ropes the next generation into doing it for him.
