I knew the situation in China was terrible, I knew the cheap stuff was inferior quality and possibly dangerous, and growing up I had some vague notion that if everything was made in China our economy would probably suffer. For a while I was just apathetic, because there didn't seem to be too many ways around it. There aren't too many products out there with a "Made in USA" alternative. But now I'm just mad, and determined to look for an alternative whenever one might possibly exist. This will tie in with that later post wherein I will scour Target and Wal-Mart for those elusive "Made in USA" items and compare the two.
Oh, and I'll never order fish at a restaurant again, at least not unless I can verify it came from this hemisphere. Not that fish farming anywhere is AMAZINGLY healthy. Bah. Fish are difficult.
