Food Police: New worshippers of Ba'al
I certainly hope you are prepared to battle the evil food police, whose latest handiwork is seen above in a letter to a parent from the child's school. (double click for easy reading) The food involved was a perfectly healthy lunch from home replaced by inferior cafeteria food. (I don't think replacing lunch meat with chicken nuggets improves anything.) Did this seriously happen in North Carolina? The answer is yes. Has this country lost its mind? Possibly. Just this week, the TV nightly news featured Michelle Obama surprising tourists at the White House with an appearance, advising them to "eat your vegetables." Sort of makes you nostalgic for "Have a nice day!" or "Hope you are enjoying your tour."
One commenter has decided that Liberalism (which is now making healthy eating one of its political goals) is directly descended from the Biblically prohibited worship of Ba'al, and I am beginning to think there is some truth to that. Before you write me off as a total nutter, do see what they have to say.
