warns of “dangerous dragonboat dumplings” in China


Why would be intererested in a story about “dangerous dragon boat dumplings” in China?

I have eaten sticky rice dumplings wrapped in tea leaves ever since I
was a young child.  I have even helped my mother make them when I
was young.  But now we usually purchase them at the many Chinese
food stores.

Sticky rice dumplings are traditionally thrown into the water to
appease the sea monsters during a dragon boat festival.  In
Vancouver, I think we feel there is enough pollution in False Creek
already – even though the local rats would probably love them!
