Killer Croc Alert

12:50 PM -- From our Thinking of the Children Department, The Dallas Morning News Website carries this AP story:

    At rail stations and shopping malls around the world, reports are popping up of people, particularly young children, getting their toes caught in escalators. The one common theme seems to be the clunky soft-soled clogs known by the name of the most popular brand, Crocs...

    Crocs officials said they were working with the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation on public education initiatives. But the group's executive director, Barbara Allen, said that's not true.
True or not, it's undeniable that there actually is an Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation, whose Website informs us that

NATIONAL ELEVATOR ESCALATOR AWARENESS WEEK IS THE SECOND FULL WEEK OF NOVEMBER.
START PLANNING YOUR CELEBRATION NOW!


Only 18 more shoppping days: Don't disappoint the kids!

re: Killer Croc Alert This is a dumb story. It's also dumb we're linking to it.

As somebody said:

"When I was a kid, my shoelaces got stuck in the escalator -- so did they ban sneakers?"
