Baby Einstein Update
Disney (the company that owns Baby Einstein) has asked that the University of Washington retract their press release announcing the findings of the study I pointed to last week, in which babies exposed to the videos were found to have smaller vocabularies than babies not. The University said no thanks.

I'm going to keep my eye on this story - and not sure why it hasn't gotten more attention. President Bush did praise the company owner at the last SOTU, and I see advertisements for her great child neglect scheme entrepeneurship skills on CNBC commercials all the time these days. What's next, medal of freedom for the Chinese toothpaste and plastic toy makers?
