China It has been reported that a number of infants in China who have consumed Chinese manufactured infant formula are suffering from kidney stones, a condition which is rare in infants. The Chinese manufactured infant formula may be contaminated with melamine. Melamine artificially increases the protein profile of milk and can causes kidney diseases such as those seen in these Chinese infants.

The FDA is asking local officials to work with the Agency to assist with the removal of any Chinese infant formula found on store shelves, and to warn residents, especially members of the Asian community to avoid using Chinese manufactured infant formula.  See Fox News.

Thinking of leaving NJ? - Join the club!

Lights Elizabeth Cotter of Montville's Towaco section said she gives Corzine an F.

Dumb as we want to be - American "energy policy"

It is great to see that we finally have some national unity on energy policy. Unfortunately, the unifying ideaDumb5  is so ridiculous, so unworthy of the people aspiring to lead our nation, it takes your breath away. Hillary Clinton has decided to line up with John McCain in pushing to suspend the federal excise tax on gasoline, 18.4 cents a gallon, for this summer’s travel season. This is not an energy policy. This is money laundering: we borrow money from China and ship it to Saudi Arabia and take a little cut for ourselves as it goes through our gas tanks.   See New York Times.  Discuss on OurMontville blog.            Hat tip:  Dennis

Wonder why?

It snowed last Tuesday. So, the state, as is its custom, paid 700 private sector snow plow drivers the Pork agreed to rate of $120 per hour to plow state highways. But because last Tuesday was Lincoln's Birthday, a state holiday, the drivers got another $13 an hour in holiday, or overtime, pay. These were not even state workers.

See Don't like the deal? Then quit county job.  Hat tip: Fred Snowflack
