when the play area was still dirty days later, she collected samples and paid to have them tested by a local laboratory. She was told they contained pathogens found in fecal material and mucus.
Weeks later and in combination with her summer vacations, Carr Jordan's filth-swabbing and bacteria-testing took her across six states and cost her about $5,000 for lab tests. She was the subject of articles and television shows, and she formed a non-profit corporation with a website called Kids Play Safe to spread the word and seek donations and grants for the tests and lobbying efforts.
Her goal is more government oversight of restaurant play areas, and she said she is frustrated by the lack of response when she shows agencies her lab results.
Kids drip from both ends? What a surprise. I had no idea.
So... why doesn't she get her own restaurant and create the cleanest play area in the world? I'm sure people would flock to it.
Or maybe they wouldn't, since most parents just say "whatever, this is why kids have immune systems."
Whatever the reason, there's no excuse for trying to bring the government's hammer down on a business you can simply choose not to patronize.
Meanwhile, nosy, go get a blog and complain about your bugaboos on the internet like a normal person.
