Dangerous Little Bugs

Earth calling all organic food snobs: 18 people sickened by e-coli in raw, unpasteurized milk. Duh. Here's more on the story from the State of Oregon.

I think we should have a national "Celebrate Preservatives Day". Grade schoolers everywhere would spend a day coloring pictures of e-coli bacteria to put on mom and dad's refrigerator door, since grade school teachers are the only ones who pay attention to those Congressionally approved "holidays" anyway.

But why, you ask, am I including this news on a forum for writing? Because it's material for a specific story I have in mind.
