As I finished up making a batch of Rice Krispie Treats last night and indulging in a square of the glorious goodness...I couldn't help but think of all the smiles they have evoked since their inception. How many sibling disputes have been laid aside, friendships repaired, depressions lifted and classrooms calmed after this treat was introduced to the situation?
I am quite sure the creator of this American dessert staple has brought more harmony and smiles than Jimmy Carter and Mohamed ElBaradei, Yasser Arafat, Kofi Annan, and Al Gore combined --yet where is her prize and recognition?
So after being snubbed since 1928, I hereby nominate Mildred Day be given the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize posthumously as soon as the rest of the world swallows their pride and admits that man isn't important enough to control weather and forces Al Gore to return his sham of an award.
Thank you Mildred for your ongoing contribution to peace, harmony and smiles. :)
