Halloween has come and gone. I'm sure many parents out there have closely inspected their kids' loot and given their seal of approval. So how did it happen that we became so careful about our kids' candy? This article gives the incident that set up x-rayed candies, and carefully checking packages for any sign of tampering. Not that you shouldn't be careful about your kids' treats-- you should, but it was someone's own avarice-driven poisoning of their own child that started the whole panic about tainted treats.
Now, that just begs the question: What kind of sick freak poisons their own child to satisfy their own greed!!?
