^ Thing is, they're funded at the state level, and most states are close to broke right now. Here in Indiana, for example, K-12 education is 53% of the state budget, by far the largest appropriation (Medicaid is a distant second, 13%). Higher ed, law enforcement, social services et al. have already been slashed to the bone to spare K-12 as much as possible; they can't be cut any further. In lean times, unfortunately, any appropriation that large becomes vulnerable.

As a student of higher education ... yes, we cannot be slashed any further, because us students are paying absurd amounts. I'm at a fucking state university staring at $100,000 for four years.

I believe the children are our are future. Teach them well and let them lead the way. Show them all the beauty they possess inside. Give them a sense of pride to make it easier. Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

Everybody's searching for a hero. People need someone to look up to. I never found anyone who fulfilled my need. A lonely place to be and so I learned to depend on me.

What would Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue think of this burning issue?

I'd like to think that Kylie would respond by wearing something skimpy. Ya know, to show how not to be overweight.

I'd think they're both preoccupied with a different sort of burning issue

Food Police Issue 'food porn' List...

The Center for Science in the Public Interest are the same idiots who ruined the taste of movie popcorn
back in the early 1990s.

'Food porn' - Is your favorite restaurant on this list? - wtop.com


I don't know what else to say about this food scare propaganda.

Can I try...It's not the food stupid! It's lack of physical activity!

Moderation in all things?

If they actually were the food police and prohibited people from eating certain food, I could maybe see your point. But I don't think pointing out which foods have obscenely high calorie and fat content is evil food scare propaganda. Seems to be pretty helpful information, to me.

If you're pretty physically active, then a 700 calorie hamburger might not be a big deal. However, if you're not physically active, maybe it would benefit you to know that the pasta carbonara dish you're looking at has 2500 calories and 60 grams of saturated fat.

Information is not propaganda.

You love to use certain phrases but you never seem to really understand them.

It's a press release from an independent watchdog organization. You write as if it's the government telling you what to eat.

this just in: food from restaurants is fattening, and usually even moreso than you'd think.

as canadiens pointed out too it's an independent study, no one's forbidding anyone from ordering a large triple baconator combo with a frosty or the fettucini alfredo and a huge slice of chocolate cake.

i don't see how this is a big deal. people should know how much fat and calories is in their food, especially since most chain restaurants like to hide their nutritional info. mcdonald's is expected to post their stuff on a huge poster in the restaurant or on the packaging, yet the same standards aren't being held to olive garden or cheesecake factory, and most of these places don't even post it on their website.

you can call it the food police but i like knowing what's in what i'm eating and just how many bypasses i'll need after it.
