Kids Lunch Boxes with Lead from China… DUH!

More than 50,000 lunch boxes given out by the state as part of its nutrition education effort may contain elevated levels of lead and the public should stop using them, officials said today.

The California Department of Public Health said testing found increased lead levels in three lunch boxes, which were made in China. They are green canvas and bear a logo that says, "Eat fruits & vegetables and be active." Officials urged the public to stop using the roughly 56,000 such boxes that have been handed out at health fairs and other events.

Drunk School Bus Driver walks with just Probation… Double DUH DUH…

FITCHBURG— The mother of a child driven by an intoxicated school transportation driver said she is not disappointed with the driver’s suspended sentence, but is troubled that the driver did not apologize.

Cynthia A. Lea, 39, of 62 Taft Road, Sterling, was charged with child endangerment after driving a child with autism home from school while intoxicated. She received a 90-day suspended sentence and has been placed on probation until May 2009.

Ms. Lea was scheduled to go to trial today on the last two of four charges resulting from the Nov. 10, 2006, incident that terrorized the mother of the elementary school student.

The child’s mother, Cynthia M. McCullough of Princeton, said yesterday that the district attorney’s office had prepared her for the fact that Ms. Lea would not serve time in jail because it was her first offense. What was most lacking, said Mrs. McCullough, was an apology for what Ms. Lea put her through.

Riding Public Transportation takes an Adult Twist… DUH!

Seattle trolley develops unfortunate nickname: SLUT
Associated Press

SEATTLE — Officially, it's the South Lake Union Streetcar. But in the neighborhood where the new line runs, it's called the South Lake Union Trolley — or, the SLUT.

At Kapow! Coffee, a shop in the old Cascade neighborhood, 100 T-shirts bearing the words "Ride the SLUT" sold out in days, and another 100 are on order.

"We're welcoming the SLUT into the neighborhood," said Jerry Johnson, 29, a part-time barista.

Gotta be careful about those acronyms.

My mom was originally going to be given the middle name of "Susan", except my grandmother then realized it would give her the initials "A.S.S"
