Import Hassles

The other day I went to the store to buy some toys for my 5-month-old daughter. As I searched through shelves overflowing with colorful plastic and furry objects, I did something I never do: I looked to see where the toys were made. Anything marked "Made in China" I set aside.

I am not a patriotic consumer. My aversion to products from China was a simple issue of safety.
