Boston Food Police’s Half-Baked Idea

The Boston Herald reports that the food police in Boston are banning bake sales in schools.

Democratic state Senator Susan Fargo, chairwoman of the Joint Committee on Public Health, told the Herald that childhood obesity has reached “crisis” proportions. She justifies the draconian measure, “If we didn’t have so many kids that were obese, we could have let things go.”

I’ll be speaking out about the absurdity on Boston’s Talk 1200 with Jeff Katz at 8:05 AM Tuesday.

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
