Submission + - Dems in Denver to display their vision of future

pease1 writes: "Trash police to ensure delegates sort their refuse correctly; bans on unhealthy or non-local foods; mandated food colors; union, organic, and nature dyed ball caps, the Democrats at the Denver convention will show case their vision of our future if they have their way.

From the Wall Street Journal: "Decked out in green shirts, 900 volunteers will hover at waste-disposal stations to make sure delegates put each scrap of trash in the proper bin. Lest a fork slip into the wrong container unnoticed, volunteers will paw through every bag before it is hauled away ... No fried food. And, on the theory that nutritious food is more vibrant, each meal should include "at least three of the following colors: red, green, yellow, blue/purple, and white." (Garnishes don't count.) At least 70% of ingredients should be organic or grown locally, to minimize emissions from fuel burned during transportation."

Quark! Quark! Beware the quantum duck!
