    Right down the road from me. Raeford NC is very similar to Mayberry of TV lore...

    A North Carolina mom is irate after her four-year-old daughter returned home late last month with an uneaten lunch the mother had packed for the girl earlier that day. But she wasn’t mad because the daughter decided to go on a hunger strike. Instead, the reason the daughter didn‘t eat her lunch is because someone at the school determined the lunch wasn’t healthy enough and sent it back home.

    The lunch that was deemed "unhealthy" by Moochelle's food nazis?

    A turkey and cheese sandwich, a banana, a bag of potato chips and a box of apple juice.

    Instead, the young girl was given cafeteria chicken nuggets and her mom was billed $1.22.

    What a bunch of hypocrites. We all know for a fact that there are Ding Dongs in the White House.

    I'd be pissed...fuck that, I give my kid the lunch then tell them to eat it regardless of what the teacher said. Then make damn well sure the school knew that.

    My mom would have been in big trouble. She would pack me a half a sandwich and an apple. But back then, ketchup counted as a vegetable, so if I had ketchup on sandwich, I would have had 2 servings from the vegetable/fruit category.

    Sometimes, the Right's Noise Machine can whip up some pretty good stuff for their daily daily dose of outrage for the terminally offended. I mean some real pearl clutchers.

    This is not one of those times.

    Well, you eat penis for lunch, so your opinion really doesn't matter.

    While this one is pretty good (as far as absurdity), the best in recent memory remains the outrage fed to the faithful over Chinese food being served for lunch at Sidwell Friends on December 7th. That was fucking awesome.

    Shouldn't you be cutting your wrists now or reading the emo forum?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Wow, you even capitalized Right's Noise Machine. I guess that makes it a real thing.

    Trying to change the subject? Not working so well, is it?

    Here is the issue: A school bureaucrat unilaterally decided that a child's lunch didn't meet his/her personal nutritional standards and imposed a cost on the parents. The bureaucrat imposed his judgment over the parents' judgment, and then commanded that they pay for it. The amount involved is not very large, but the principle is huge. What if the school didn't like the kid's lunchbox (all those nasty corporate characters and logos) or notebook (is the notebook manufacturer unionized? Green? Do they give to the right causes?)? Can they demand that the parents purchase a school-approved lunchbox with a PBS character on it instead of a corporate one (My daughter will go berserk if they try to replace Scooby Doo with Nina Totenberg)? Can a school decide that a child's wardrobe isn't up to school standards and purchase a new one and bill the parents (Just think, Che t-shirts for everyone!)? Where does the school get the authority to decide how I will spend my money?
