Some students are protesting a new federal law that sets limits on the calories that the meals should contain and requires more fresh fruits and vegetables as part of the menu. (Warning: That link has a photo showing Michelle Obama with bare arms, which some find offensive.)
I rarely pulled the “think of all the starving children in India” gambit when trying to persuade my own children to not complain about or waste food, but I do think that these students have no idea how fortunate they are that they live in a country in which the government can afford to give them a free and nutritious meal each day, sometimes more than one.
The Daily Show talks about the protest.
And of course, we know who caused this problem. It is that bare-armed, short-wearing, athletic menace to society, Michelle Obama.
