I was reading an article about the Egyptian revolution, pondering why the US government is so intent on giving the Muslim Brotherhood power when this other story caught my eye–20 children dead after lunch? Another 27 people hospitalized? Cook included?

That is fast and tragic. The feeding program was designed to offer extra nutrition to impoverished children, but has had problems with food safety before.

One of the doctors treating the children says they showed signs of pesticide absorption.

The children died because their food was saturated with poison.

So tragic.
