I read an article where a child was poisoned by alcohol sanitizer
recently.  Its only a matter of time before a child dies, or they start
getting the swift idea of lighting it.  My own step-son was required by
the school to bring a bottle to begin the year.  This is a clear example
of bringing an item to market, and not enough controls.  Everyone thinks
sanitizer is so great.  

Anyone else being requested to bring it to school?
