Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

It's The Hunger Games, round two. Fresh off of limiting the caloric content of your child's school lunch Michelle Obama's minions at the USDA are moving to restrict what snacks can be sold during the day. No snack can exceed 200 calories, and must comprise either a fruit, vegetable, dairy product, protein food, "whole-grain rich" product, or a combination food that contains at least 1/4 cup of fruits or vegetables.
In practice, the proposed rules would replace traditional potato chips with baked versions and candy with granola. Regular soda is out, though high-schoolers may have access to diet versions.
Friday's release won praise from health advocates who say it will help combat childhood obesity, a growing problem in the United States with wide implications for future public health spending.
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said that students' academic performance may also improve with healthier habits.
Improved academic performance? You mean like the last time when some kids were so hungry they started gnawing on their backpacks? Didn't you hosers learn anything from that fiasco?
Apparently not. Central Planning 101 — all children will eat what
Michelle Obama tells them to eat. And nothing more. Because The State is
onmipotent. And your child is merely one of millions, all alike,
interchangeable with any other, bred to serve the government, and destined
to conform with every whim of the bureaucracy. For their own good, of course.
