GOOD DAY FOR: Robbing the cradle, after the newly strengthened Consumer Product Safety Commission, in its first move, recalled some 900,000 bassinets made by Simplicity. The bassinets have been linked to the deaths of two infants since last year. Simplicity is no longer in operation. Its assets were bought by Blackstreet Capital affiliate SFCA, which says it isn’t liable for the products. (The Washington Post)
BAD DAY FOR: Facing the music, after the FBI arrested blogger Kevin Cogill on felony charges for leaking nine unreleased tracks from an upcoming album by the band Guns N’ Roses. Cogill, 27, faces up to three years in jail under a three-year-old federal anti-piracy law. Leaking unreleased songs can hurt album sales. “I hope he rots in jail,” said Slash, the former Guns N’ Roses guitarist. (Los Angeles Times)
