    In Florida (and who knows where else) lead levels in paper grocery bags at Publics and Winn Dixies found to have lead levels so high that if you were to dispose of these bags with your household trash they could be classed as hazardous waste.
    So, .... recipes calling for cooking in a bag, probably is a no no for your good health, if you use old grocery bags.
    But, then some of you choose to smoke also............

    The American Way???

    I hear that the NRA have been trying to increase the Plumbum content of ballot papers for a number years....the ballot papers to be used as wadding, and the plumbum to be used as the singularly signal message to their elected government officials.

    Previous use of this method include, Abraham Lincoln, James A Garfield, William M Mckinley, and John F Kennedy. It almost worked with Ronald Raygun too, but not having a brain, and not having a didn't leave Hinkley with too many vital organ options. ; )

    Maybe it's because I am reputed to not know anything about American culture or history....but I am getting the feeling that gunning down American Presidents IS the American Way : O

    I don't think that it's your knowledge of American history that anyone disagrees with. It's your slanted knowledge. In a thread about lead in grocery bags, you managed to link the NRA to several assassinations and attempts on political figures. What you can't glean from reading American history in a book is exactly how we feel about that.... it seems ludicrous. There is a lot more to America and Americans that what you have read...

    I do enjoy your posts Chelloveck. It provides some insight into why we "left" the Commonwealth.;) If only you were British, it would be easier.

    Chelloveck, only a TROLL would come to a thread and throw down a gauntlet of such misdirected anti-american irrelevant BS. What you had to say had nothing to do with the thread. A thread about public safety and cooking methods. Some people here cook in an oven with a paper bag to enhance moistness in the meat they are preparing. Other safer bags are available, but are expensive. In the past paper grocery bags have been used this way quite effectively for free.
    It is well known on the web that you TROLL various forums and post responses meant to disrupt and incite argument. I find your style of posting, and your obvious malicious meaningless spew to be tiring.
    If you have nothing meaningful that is pertainant to the thread, kindly take your sorry butt elsewhere. Others should consider your responses to their posts. The value, and intent of your responses, and maybe put you on "ignore" as well.

    Ol' Chelly has pulled his tongue from his cheek by now, guys. He's too smart to think for half a heartbeat that 300 million of us are interested in application of lead therapy to our presidents. Slightly off topic, sure, but Monkeys are good at that.

    Just don't feed those bags to your kids ----
