The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act or Why I'm Cranky

My crafty brothers and sisters are up in arms about the the new Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. I'd read a bit about it and thought they were over-reacting. Today I read a bit more and now I'm aggravated too. Forbes has a trio of articles concerning the act and the ill effect it's going to have on resellers of used clothing and articles for children, various charities, and libraries (among others).

Once again I'm thinking there are just too many laws. Pretty soon it's going to be impossible to be a good citizen without violating some law or another.

(And yes, I've already written to my representatives. And I tried to phone them, but my @#$@! VOiP system refused to connect the call.)
