First of all, in a hit article Gino has already pounded (quite well BTW), it appears that the USDA is "allowing" school lunch programs to have a bit more grain and meat in the school lunch. As the son of someone who worked in the school lunch for years, I have to say that I've learned that the degree of control exercised by the government in this area has to be seen to be believed, and it still doesn't get rid of "real Italian pizza." (no insult intended to real--or fake--Italians who know what real pizza is; it's the school district's ethnic slur, not mine!)
For that matter, does the government's "one size fits all" recommendation for eating in general fit any of us? The 6'10" guy and the little gal at 4'8"? The thirtieth generation of grain farmers (that is, most caucasians), and those descended from hunter-gatherers? Really?
And in other inspiring news, the Chrysler workers caught drinking their lunch have apparently been, at the demand of the UAW, been reinstated in their jobs. Because it's not like UAW workers work around heavy equipment that could kill a man, and it's not like doing their job incorrectly could cause a catastrophic failure in their product, after all.
When Chrysler and GM go bankrupt again, I hope we have an adult in the White House who understands the consequences of bailing out the UAW. Chrysler's poor quality record is not all the UAW's fault, but this kind of nonsense certainly doesn't help.
