1. I remember being 7 when this happened

I was afraid to take any medicine for like a year. They never caught this sicko either.

3. They had a suspect.

It was clear that he was the culprit, but there was never enough evidence to convict him.

8. omg, I remember Bob Greene's article about the youngest victim

12 years old, an only child. Her parents were so careful and protective of her, had her call whenever she went somewhere, to make sure she was safe. As Green put it to the poisoner, "they thought they knew all the dangers.....they just didn't know about you"

2. That's because I never stormed the state Capitol building in Olympia

screaming about my right not to have to remove so much tamper-proof packaging in order to take a couple of Tylenol.

Yeah, I should have done that...

4. Poison doesn't kill people. People kill people.

oh wait...

Well it's not like anyone has poisoned the bullets.

6. Not just Tylenol...

I had a list of other defective products where the government jumped in with all its might to protect people going back to the 50ís. (Remember Thalidomide?)

And NO ONE COMPLAINED, said the Govít was overreacting, or their FREEDUMBS! weíre being ďviolated.Ē

Odd, that....

9. Unfortunately

The right to safety from tainted Tylenol isnít part of our constitution, while unlimited access to fireArms of all types and ammunition is.

14. You realize people can still run stop signs, right?

Why have them then? A stop sign doesnít prevent a car from T-boning another car at an intersection.

Drunk driving laws donít stop drunks from driving, either. And driverís license requirements donít stop unqualified drivers from getting behind the wheel.

11. I was in high school in the Chicago suburbs. I remember over the loud speaker a voice telling

us to check the lot numbers on our Tylenol if we had it to check if it could be poison.

I was very perplexed as to why they didn't just say "If you have any Tylenol throw it away"?

Why the ef did they focus on lot numbers when kids could have poison on them I don't know.

12. Back in those days, the Repukes were still almost normal then

... they hadn't been abducted by the lizard people yet. All that happened a year or two later.

17. Back then, there were actual moderate Republicans in office

like William Cohen of Maine, Lowell Weicker of Connecticut and John Chaffee of RI. Nowadays, the media calls a republican that goes against the party line once a year a "moderate"

And, sane conservatives as well, like Warren Rudman and Richard Lugar.
