This is simply too much! My family will certainly sleep securely tonight.

The title "Insects and Bureaucrats" reminds me of the line from Mark Twain, "Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself."

Dear OSC:

I'm wondering about wooden toothpicks that don't trip the metal detector. Those things are dangerous! A toothpick-wielding militia could spell the end of our way of life. And, to top it off, the toothpick industry is utterly unregulated. Scary.
