I feel good (in a sad sort of way) that the blind insanity and knuckle-headed, knee jerk reactions to something they nothing about is not limited to those in charge of my hometown. But when I read this article (kudos as always to CMHL, even if she never heard of a Fluffernutter 😉 ), I now know that opportunistic lawmakers from all over are quick to make an idiot of themselves, by taking a stand without anything that could resemble facts in front of them. In the story it states,
Sen. Jarrett Barrios was outraged that his son Nathaniel, a third-grader,
was given a Fluffernutter sandwich at the King Open School in Cambridge. He said
he plans to file legislation that would ban schools from offering the local
delicacy more than once a week as the main meal of the day.
The Democrat said that his amendment to a bill on junk food in schools
may seem “a little silly” – but that school nutrition is serious.
I fully support increasing nutrition for our kids in schools, but can just one of these clowns get the facts before they start one of their crusades?
