Hot Dogs

I love this headline: Doctors Urging for a Safer, Choke-Free Hot Dog

Some parents actually want to force hot dog manufacturers to change the shape of hot dogs.

Here's an amazing thought: Why don't parents just cut them up so that they are no longer a choking hazard? When I give my two-year-old a hot dog, I cut it into strips. It's usually too hot to eat right away anyway, so this not only solves the choking hazard issue, but helps him to not burn his mouth.

By this time next year, taxpayers will probably have spent millions for Congress to pass the Hot Dog Safety Bill.
No more footlongs for you.

I wonder what sort of earmarks and student-loan-type takeovers they will sneak into the bill. Is this really worth the fight to save parents the hassle of having to cut up their kid's food?
