    Hoooo leeeee crap.

    Aqua Dots, something my kids ask for every time we pass them at Target, Wal-Mart or wherever, are made with the date rape drug.
    And they just happen to be brightly colored, easy consumed and have sent a few kids into comas.

    Later in the story ...

    How long until businesspeople figure out that China is not our friend?

    A whole lot of kids are going to be bummed to find sweaters under the tree this year. Of course, the Chinese make those, too.

    When I say heads should roll because of this, unfortunately I'm correct.

    Holiday shopping just got a new instruction: Nothing made in China.

    That's it. All my kids will ever get for Christmas is violent video games.

    I wouldn't eat Chinese candy if you paid me -- well, depending on how much, I suppose -- and it's got nothing to do with the drug. When I was in third grade, this Chinese kid gave me some candy that his mom made from a family recipe. It was the most foul thing I've ever eaten in my life. That kid, of course, inhaled every piece he could get his mitts on, though him being a 150-pound 8-year-old child probably had a lot to do with that.

    I think I'd rather take the drug than eat the candy.

    OK, but how do I get my dates to swallow Chinese made toys?

    Now that's an interesting dilemma.
