Quote of the day

Right here:

We can agree that in the wealthiest nation on earth, all children should have the basic nutrition they need to learn and grow.

-- Michelle Obama, First Lady, on the child-nutrition bill that President Obama signed into law on Monday

Yes, you'd think we could all agree about that. I'm quite certain that there are those who believe the government ought to have no part in it, however.


  1. Indeed. I have friends who think the government has no right to tell them what their children should or should not eat, citing that they know well enough what their children need. I should find this bill and read what it actually says...hopefully there is a large provision for an education piece. If I've learned anything in grad school it's that true change requires education...regulations and laws only create short-term change.

  2. I completely agree, Maggie.

    Good to hear from you again! I so hope you're doing well.

    Love ya!
