I blame that teasing harlot Lucy.

On another topic, just how screwed up was Charles Schulz? Let's see, we got a kid with object dependency issues, another one with no hair, a dominatrix, a germophile, a reclusive gay musician, and a lesbian/submissive pairing... all we need is a stalker chick, and... oh wait...

If he shipped the contaminated product knowingly he needs to be charged with one count of murder for each person who has died.

Does anyone else remember "Goobers" featuring "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" from the National Lampoon? I remember an episode in which the black "Lucy" equivalent character was trying to whomp the shiat out of Leroy with her purse, to little effect, causing Leroy to say "That's what you get fo' acceptin' food stamps instead o' quarters."

A lot of the characters were based on his friends and family.

Meanwhile, in the nation's capital, the owner of Peanut Corp. of America sat stiffly, his hands in his lap, at a witness table as Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore., held up a clear jar of the company's products wrapped in crime-scene tape and asked if he would eat them.

Maybe if our senators spent more time making sure the FDA was being run effectively, and less time grandstanding with props, they'd have saved a few lives.

I am currently eating TWO tasty peanut butter cookies from Subway so this topic is tangentially relevant to my interests.

There have only been 2 deaths in the entire history of the state? Nice.

While I admit it would really suck if I died because I ate some peanut butter... thats uh... two deaths? How many people were killed in car accidents yesterday alone?

/I eat peanut butter every day, cause I'm not a pussy

Just a wee litle murderer. The people who die from Sal Monella are pretty compromised. My detail man father spaced out on the flu vax a coupla time and about 20 old farts died as a consequence, but they just fired him he was not prosecuted or anything. I eat our of pushcarts all of the time and just get the trots on the odd occasion. If the vic was on death's door as it was, its a little less of a crime than murder, it seems to me.

You don't need a license and to be sober to eat Peanut Butter.

Well, that's two deaths in Ohio. this one makes the total 10 so far. over 600 ill.

the problem is it could have been prevented, but the plant manager was a typical 'bottom line' douchebag and was worried about the costs associated with a recall.

Let's feed the tainted products to the plant manager since he thought them okay to ship out.

More like manslaughter or negligent homicide. You just get the runs and heaves from salomanella unless you're in pretty bad shape to begin with.

/would be pissed if it was my grandma
// Then grandma would tell me sonny you best sue them for me and get lots of money, and the grocery store, and the food distributor and so on.

Should that comma be where it is in that headline? Shouldn't it read: "Peanuts behind second death in Ohio - Damn you Charlie Brown"

Maxor: negligent homicide

Is that applicable when he knew he was distributing a contaminated product?

Drug czar.
Stimulus czar.
War czar.
Auto czar.
Homeleand security czar.
There's even a FEMA disaster czar.

What we need is a peanut butter czar. A chicken czar might be a good idea,too; both chicken fried and non chicken fried. I think there's someone out there who would want to be a chicken fried chicken czar. But, I'm tired of watching people die because of the food we eat being spoiled. If we had a czar, we could stop this from happening. There' be some oversight...there'd be some control. People would have someone to look forward to in the fight for pure, bacteria free peanut butter. Think...if only there was a czar for every major (and minor) food group. Think of the thousands of dollars we could burn just fighting the war against peanut butter. Or bad peanut butter, rather.

Remember, folks. You're either with the people who want untainted peanut butter or you're with the terrorists.

I think the next thing to do would be to decide the use of hats. Should the peanut czar have a peanut shaped hat? Or a hat that looked like a ful jar of peanut butter? How about a 1/2 full jar. That would show we're making progress. Although, I guess the czar of peanut butter/chocolate snacks would have to have a jar with 1/2 a bar of chocolate sticking out of it. And how about the ministry of Bacon? I can see swarms of bacon-cops with their baconators tending to business...scanning neighborhoods...insuring that your bacon is done to the level where is most crispy, yet satisfyingly safe to consume.

I know..we could call them the "Pig patrol." or maybe, "The bacon brigade." Yeah, that would rock. I'd join the bacon brigage. Wouldn't you?

The "world headquarters" for this company is actually the house of the guy who owns the company; just outside the city limits of Lynchburg, VA. Oh yeah, and it's just an 8-10 minute drive from my apartment.

It's way beyond negligence when you know there's salmonella in the product. This is murder with malice aforethought.
