out of the mouths of babes...

Talking about this stupid law (CPSIA: the consumer product safety "improvement" act of 2008, also known as "Bankruptcy Day") requiring expensive testing on all children's products, including clothing, "just in case" there is lead or phthalates in them and "just in case" someone's child decides to chew on a library book that contains lead or phthalates.

As we were talking about this, including what the dangers of lead are, and the problems with requiring testing, looking at both sides of the issue, one of my daughters made this amusing observation:

Sounds like maybe some congressmen were sucking on their kids' lead-painted toys when they wrote this one up!

Dear Husband says they get their wit from me. I am still trying to figure out if he meant that as a compliment.
