Hearing on Toxic Toys. Somehow, toymakers aren’t already compelled to disclose whether they use cancer-causing ingredients. At a public hearing organized by the Washington Toxics Coalition, you can make the audacious case that parents should feel entirely confident that it’s a safer bet, long-run, to let their children play with toys rather than, say, scissors. Only problem is, this event is in Lacey, WA. If you don't think it's worth the journey, here you will see why you should very much try to go. (Department of Ecology, Lacey Headquarters Auditorium, 300 Desmond Drive, Lacey, 7 p.m., free)
