“Give Me Gummi Bears Or Give Me Death”

Doug Powers mocks a Chicago school for banning students from bringing packed lunches.  I’m not sure which part I like more:  how this appears to be another money grab by unions or how people treat it like a foregone conclusion that if the government doesn’t force you to do something, it just won’t get done.  Especially good in the second category is the parent who bemoans “no control over the food” when kids bring it in.  Err, you are the parent, right?  You know that part of being a parent means raising your kids, right?  Sometimes, I think that we’d be better off if procreation required reading the instruction manual first; at least there’d be a lot fewer idiots running around…
