ATTENTION WALMART SHOPPERS

"For the next ten minutes, we are having a sale on defective children's beds on aisle four.
Please disregard the children with broken limbs and come on down for the best buy
since the collapsing strollers we had back in the nineties.
And as always, thanks for shopping at WalMart."


It's a shame, really. Children aren't safe in their beds anymore LITERALLY.
Their parents mean well but as the saying goes, the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. The doors are locked against predators that invade their homes, the outlets are plugged to prevent their little fingers from exploration, a timely bedtime to ensure adequate rest BUT IT ISN'T ENOUGH!
THERE ARE BEDS MADE FOR CHILDREN THAT ARE MORE DANGEROUS THAN THE OUTLAWED MERRY-GO-ROUNDS WE ENJOYED AS CHILDREN.
My dear friend Crystal has a story every parent should read. It will anger you that companies like Graco and Simplicity will not take complete responsbility for the suffering of innocent children.
It's too bad we can't hire a Johnnie Cochran, or plan a media campaign, or get a bunch of bloggers to.....WAIT A MINUTE!!!
That's the answer! The bloggers that took down Rather and that saved George Bush's presidential hide could send an email or two or a thousand to these companies whose bottom line is worth more than a two year old's broken femur.
Hmm. This could work. Now who could we get to do it??? If I only knew a bunch of bloggers that cared for children...


You are certainly looking pretty/handsome today. Have you lost weight? Is that a new cologne? Great shirt you have on today! Okay, enough kissing up. Go to Crystal's blog and read her story and then let your conscience be your guide.

KING OF THE BLOGS UPDATE
Just wanted to say thanks to all of you for the votes and kind words. In college, I lost the Dorm floor Presidency by three votes but was unanimously elected to Social Chairman. Didn't have anything to do with the fact that I was a football trainer, did it? Anyway, thanks so much. It meant the world to me.
