 Wal-Mart halted sales of Chinese-made flip-flops after some 
 purchasers reported suffering skin rashes or chemical burns. 
 Many products coming out of China are now being recalled due 
 to unsafe materials used to make products and keep the budget 
 at a low cost. 

 The Chinese are using some strong but cheap chemical in the 
 manufacturing of clothing.  You can see the results by

Subj:     Mom Sells Rule-Breaking Son's Car
          From: ginafm on 1/11/2008 

 Jan 9, 2008 

 Jane Hambleton has dubbed herself the "meanest mom on the 

 After finding alcohol in her son's car, she decided to sell 
 the car and share her 19-year-old's misdeed with everyone — 
 by placing an ad in the local newspaper. 

 The ad reads: "OLDS 1999 Intrigue.  Totally uncool parents 
 who obviously don't love teenage son, selling his car.  Only 
 driven for three weeks before snoopy mom who needs to get a 
 life found booze under front seat. $3,700/offer.  Call 
 meanest mom on the planet." 

 Hambleton has heard from people besides interested buyers 
 since recently placing the ad in The Des Moines Register. 

 The 48-year-old from Fort Dodge says she has fielded more 
 than 70 telephone calls from emergency room technicians, 
 nurses, school counselors and even a Georgia man who 
 wanted to congratulate her. 

 "The ad cost a fortune, but you know what?  I'm telling 
 people what happened here," Hambleton says.  "I'm not just 
 gonna put the car for resale when there's nothing wrong 
 with it, except the driver made a dumb decision. 

 "It's overwhelming the number of calls I've gotten from 
 people saying 'Thank you, it's nice to see a responsible 
 parent.'  So far there are no calls from anyone saying, 
 'You're really strict. You're real overboard, lady.'" 

 The only critic is her son, who Hambleton says is "very,
 very unhappy" with the ad and claims the alcohol was left 
 by a passenger. 

 Hambleton believes her son but has decided mercy isn't the 
 best policy in this case.  She says she set two rules when 
 she bought the car at Thanksgiving: No booze, and always 
 keep it locked. 

 The car has been sold, but Hambleton says she will continue 
 the ad for another week — just for the feedback.

 My first is a number, my second another.  And each, I assure 
 you, will rhyme with the other.  My first you will find is 
 one-fifth of my second.  And truly my whole a long period 
 reckoned.  Yet my first and my second (nay, think not I 
 cozen), when added together will make but two dozen. 
 How many am I?
