Vox Populi….

in Food and Drink, Nanny State

Here’s a letter to the Baltimore Sun:

Applauding government-issued dietary recommendations, Peggy Yen insists that “people need simple guidelines for choosing the food they eat” (Letters, Feb. 9).

If people are too dimwitted to choose on their own the foods they eat, how can they possibly be trusted to choose on their own the persons who represent them in government?

The evidence does indeed suggest that Americans too often choose as their elected representatives greasy, pork-laden, and processed hot dogs who offer only empty calories as they clog the arteries of commerce.
