I say it is time to hold the stores that are selling this stuff accountable PERIOD.

However, yesterday I just happened to hear that asbestos (WHAT?) has been found in some regular everyday consumer products including DUCT TAPE and TOYS (for heaven’s sake)!  We have the Art Skills’ Clay Bucket and it has been wrapped up and put away but the damage may already have been done.  Asbestos related illness doesn’t generally show up until 20 to 30 years later.  I’m flippin’ MAD!

Okay, don’t beat up on me…this is a bit of tongue in cheek…but not many out there are writing about this.
