Now of course I have to ask. Who has the authority to go pilfering through my child's lunch? I thought a search warrant was required for such things.
Who has the authority to decide whether my child's lunch is nutritious or not? What the hell is wrong with a turkey and cheese sammich?
Who's damned business is it to decide what my child shall or shall not eat? Tell me.
I remember when I was in grade school I brought lunches to school, mainly because the stuff in the cafeteria was so horrible. So far I have made it to nearly 60 years of age with no help from Michele Obama and the food Nazis.
It is a good thing I do not have a child at Hoke County preschool. You'd probably be reading about my arrest on Drudge.
