The cocoa workers of the Ivory Coast, the world's largest cocoa producer, are going on strike. From what little I know about the conditions of cocoa farming in Africa, I support this brave action to improve the lot of those who don't have a great life.

But if it goes on too long, we could be looking at a chocolate shortage/price increase! The very thought makes me shudder. There will be panic in the streets! Chocolate profiteers! Candy-deprived waifs! Will no one think of the children?!?
