It appears that some public school in Chicago has banned bring from home lunches to be, well, brought from home. Other schools across the country have taken a similar approach. Apparently the debate is about the nutritional value of the lunches. I am sure there is some financial incentive really behind this at the Chicago school. Probably some Federal or Illinois grant money that is paid to the schools to provide a certain amount of "healthy lunches" on campus. I would bet the school is coming out ahead on the balance sheet. Just speculation of course, it could just nothing more than busybody fascism in play here. Hard to say. Just another small skirmish in the war against personal freedom. I been atellin ya and atellin ya this kind of thing will get out of control.
It already has.
