It's pitiful that that's all I remember about that movie as well.

I kind of feel this is obligatory
I've heard they are more effective than a sword even.
Kids should eat in an easy to clean area, they should be able to eat whatever the parents decide to send.
As much as I want to agree with that, I also think children should eat healthy. There are a lot of negligent or (more likely) ignorant parents out there who are more than happy to pack some questionable highly-processed food like Lunchables thinking that it's good and healthy for their child.
This was my other concern with this... if they are banning candy, I sure as hell hope they are offering healthy food in their lines.
Then you're free to home-school your child and bypass the rules and regulations set up in public schools.
The problem here are the parents that are far more negligent than you are and send their child to school with completely nutritionally devoid food, or with little or no money to purchase food.
While I agree that such harsh steps shouldn't be taken, I strongly agree with the purpose of the initiative. Parents need to learn that a healthy attitude towards food is an invaluable thing that needs to be TAUGHT to their children. The school system can only do so much in keeping kids healthy. In the end, it IS your kid and you DO set the rules, but those rules are leading your kid to a life of obesity or diabetes, that's child abuse in my book.

Man I hope not, those Moties were pretty terrifying.
Fantastic book though, I should read that one again.
Maybe we could flash a warning message on the screen before the program loads?
Friends of a friend rather... not trying to set up a *counts on fingers* five-way here.
How about friends with a friend... and you wanna go to a ball game some time?
Yeah, but how much did the meal cost?
So instead of staying up late on the computer programming, you stay up late on the computer pretending to be in those videos you always watch?
But you didn't see the baby doing any soldering did you? That's what I thought.
