The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly...

The Good: Nissan unveils its electric car, the Leaf

The Bad:
US Marshals seize sanitizer for bacteria problems

"The FDA is committed to taking enforcement action against firms that do not manufacture drugs in accordance with our current good manufacturing practice requirements,"
said Deborah M. Autor, director of the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research Office of Compliance.

My question is whether this seizure was the FDA showing the control it gained by last week's legislation, or were there really some health problems caused by the products?

The Ugly:
There were 2 news items about the US Economy online yesterday (Sunday) afternoon… each contradicting the other. It gets really ugly to my mind when we can no longer trust the media, or when officials on the same team don’t speak the same truth…

One headline says, "Obama Officials: End of Recession is Near"
(FOXNews) The word in Washington Sunday is that the economic train is emerging from the tunnel of recession…”

The other headline says, “Obama officials eye more jobless aid, weigh taxes”
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Top US officials said on Sunday more steps may be needed to firm up economic recovery -- including extended jobless benefits -- and declined to rule out future tax increases to tame massive budget deficits.
