    Rules are rules......or maybe not

    http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/01/06/fir....ap/index.html

    So the rules say that the expectant mothers had to be legal American citizens. As the article says a lot of contest have the exact same rules. I for one am very disappointed in Toys-R-Us for not standing by the rules of their contest and bowing down to the will of the cry babies.

    I agree. Most any contest you see has the rule, "must be a US Citizen" to enter. That is not for discriminatory reasons, it is for legality issues. Toys-R-Us should have stuck to their guns and their rules of eligibility.

    I think they should include every mother from every country in the entire world in the interest of fairness. Actually they shouldn't restrict the prize to New Year's babies... that's not fair either.

    Maybe they should just liquidate their assets and cut a check for every mom out there. Now that would be fair.

    Hey, now, what about the dads? That's discriminatory to exclude them from getting a check out of the liquidation deal!

    Chinese-American advocates had complained that the toy company's decision smacked of second-class citizenship.
    From what I understood, she wasn't a citizen at all.

    Why? It's true. You can't be treated like a 2nd class citizen if you aren't a citizen.
