I’ve been following a couple of news items this week:
1. The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act– there are parts of this legislation that have small-time children’s product makers, crafters, and even the library quite concerned. I’m having trouble understanding exactly what the implications are, but I plan to watch this drama unfold with great interest.
2. Transition Towns– Amy linked to a man talking on his blog about this movement, how in his opinion getting involved could be an excellent way to evangelize. I haven’t yet found any towns in Ohio on board; there are rumors of one in southeastern Ohio, an area we all know is the very seat of enlightenment and progressive thought.
To sum up, if you are looking for a job with real potential, consider becoming an approved lead tester, or a Transition ’09 community organizer. Both careers look quite promising. 🙂
