$4.00 for a nutritionally complete meal and you're bitching about the price?

It seems highly implausible that there is a single blend of ingredients that is "nutritionally complete" for all humans. Different people have different genes, different gut flora, different lifestyles, and live in different environments.

I would argue that the one cause of the correlation is that different socio-economic groups commit different types of crime. So-called "white collar" criminals aren't arrested or convicted at anywhere near the rate that "blue collar" criminals are. Similarly, possessing powder cocaine doesn't attract anywhere near the same sentence as possessing crack cocaine does (weighted appropriately).
