The fictitious lice outbreak was not dealt with effectively because the politicians could not agree on a plan of action. Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY) even made a privileged motion that all affected heads be immediately soaked in kerosene (not really it is satire). Using kerosene or gasoline to kill head lice is very dangerous, DO NOT DO IT. A teen in Indiana is in hospital with life threatening burns after the gasoline on her hair ignited. Even if you do not have a problem with head lice now, you should educate yourself. Visit www.super-lice.com and get the toxin free method that works, even on Super Lice. The term Super Lice refers to lice that are resistant to most of the toxic shampoos that are available over the counter or by prescription.
