I posted the following in response to about 30 posts complaining about the school lunches. As expected, the response I received was exactly as I stated, denial, blame, and complaint. As if the community wasn't negative enough, now we have a reporter adding to it. I guess Tim Hunt fits in well.
"What a state we have come to, where we dont want to be told what we can eat, but we want to tell the schools what they should have. Where we no longer trust our children to eat the multiple healthy options when away from home, yet we complain if we are told we cant have them in our cities. We cant even have children drinking out of water faucets, it's not good enough for them, yet packing a water container is too complicated? You don't want to pay for services at school, yet when the option for buying is taken away, it's a problem.
Tim Hunt, I think what you have helped exemplify is a greater problem than a nanny state. And the posts on the PW site just further reveal this new state, of denial, blame, complaint, and negativity.
It's no longer ok to say something is going well. Anyone who tries, is bullied. This is the real problem."
