A Year with the Hoopers
by James Hoby
A large box is thrown from a passing van into a yard. Inside the box, the yard’s owner finds some worthless junk packed with a tremendous amount of shredded paper. Enraged, he hires two local teenagers to scan the shreds into his computer, he uses special software to reassemble the shreds, and he publishes the most private and embarrassing documents about the litterbugs, the Hoopers.
