Cannondale recall and what's wrong with our country?

Scrolling through my Google reader today, I saw the following post:
Liking road bikes, and having several friends who ride Cannondales, I felt like I had a moral obligation to click through. As I waited for the page to load, things were flying through my mind - do the frames fail? Do the forks buckle unexpectedly? Does the seat tube poke through the seat making the whole ride more interesting? When the page loaded, I was shocked. They are issuing a recall of $1500-2000 bikes because they are missing............
Yep, that's right.  A whole recall for a crappy two cent piece of plastic that most riders who buy $1500-2000 bikes would remove anyway. Doesn't the CPSC have toys to test for lead, or something more important to do than recall high-end bikes due to a stupid piece of plastic?
