Paging Ralph Nader
With the news that Nokia is recalling millions of batteries, on top of the ongoing exploding laptop problem, and Chinese-made products ranging from toothpaste to Barbies sounding alarm bells, we can’t help but feel the absence of America’s greatest consumer advocate.
If Ralph Nader isn’t interested, we need a replacement. Perhaps a reality show would best capture the public imagination. We could call it “America’s Next Top Nader” or “So You Think You Can Advocate on Behalf of Consumers?” Or we could just take our chances.
