THE 1999 COMPLIANCE CRAZE You'll be glad to know that companies guarantee plastic cutting boards to be free from Y2K probs. No, we're not kidding. February 23, 1999

Can't remember what Dan Qualye was correcting but if it was singular verses plural then according to the following he was right.

Potato...n, plural-toes

But will we be able to make plastic?
