The Larry Craig story is indeed an embarrassing one, but you know who I feel sorry for? People who listen to iPods while in public restrooms and don’t know the secret homosexual bathroom code of foot tapping. If they’re just enjoying their music, I don’t think it’s cool to bust them, unless it’s because of a Kelly Clarkson song.

More bad news regarding Chinese toy manufacturers. Rather than force another recall, however, I think Mattel should just keep the toys they have and market them as learning tools…for example, “Lead-Based Barbie”. When kids pull the string and hear her slurred speech and see her slower-than-normal reaction time, they’ll learn a valuable lesson about the negative effects of lead. The company saves money. Parents save time teaching about danger. And the kids still have toys to play with. It’s a win-win-win!
