Letter: Liberals even mess up lunch

This public school lunch mandate is just the latest in the growing series of high-handed, unrealistic efforts by liberals to force their controls on the “little people.” The odds of the Obama girls or their classmates being served this inadequate array of unpalatable pap are too close to zero to measure.

Although perhaps well-meaning in this era of childhood obesity, limiting the calories and choices of active and growing children is bad enough, but having the feds dictating local policy complete with penalties is even worse. Somehow, they have isolated themselves from the rules made for others and live in a protected, publicly funded aura of self-importance, which is increasingly distasteful and ultimately unsustainable.

And we ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Carry your lunch ... get in the boat.
