In other "China's economic miracle" news

Chinese state media say three children have died in northwest China from suspected poisoning after drinking tainted milk. Thirty-five other people, mostly children, are being treated at hospitals in Gansu province.

Nitrite is a chemical usually used for curing meat. Several producers have been caught, in the past, adding often lethal chemicals as protein substitutes to fool quality inspectors.

The worst case of tainted milk occurred in 2008. At least six infants died and nearly 300,000 others fell ill after drinking baby formula milk powder laced with the industrial chemical melamine to beat protein quality tests.
Just more innovative capitalism... from the folks who brought you lead-painted baby toys.

And in other "news" -- I hear you're sitting this one out Neo. Will that be you and the missus?

Your loss -- it's going to be interesting, and IMHO, historic.

Just my usual - no party membership - just lawn sign (in a sea of dizzy Carolyn Bennett voters) since Day 1.

And Harper Leadership sticker on windshield (since 2006).

You know - little old age pensioner stuff - nothing strategic like YOU, Neo, - Can I call you Neo?)

Does that "elucidate" your question?

someone using he handle "neo con" has posted on several BT sites the "I'm sitting this one out..."

You are the only blogger I know that uses "Neo Con" as a handle so I assumed the posts were yours and after reading about 4 identical posts on 4 different BT siyes I decided to reply to your first post ... China. If you aren't the author of the "sitting this one out" post - my apologies, If you are ... well ... my first post on this site has as much to do with the topic as the multitude of "sitting this one out posts" on unrelated topics.

You're confused ...? I'm confused.

On topic, at least the Chinese government will kill the douchebags who tainted the milk. They're good that way.
