Apr 5, 2013 Teshumai commented on School Makes Weeping Hungry Kids Throw Away Food Because It Wasn't Paid For.
Am I heartless for thinking the school has a pretty good policy going here? Kid forgets lunch money, kid gets cheese sandwich instead of normal hot lunch. This doesn't seem to be aimed at kids who are on subsidized lunches, but at kids who aren't keeping track of their accounts well. It's a debit card on training wheels, and probably not a bad introduction to financial reponsiblity. (I was one of those kids who constantly lost lunch tickets many decades ago. I probably dropped them on my walk to school, which was uphill both ways.)

It's not clear why cheese sandwiches weren't provided after hot lunches were thrown away. That's the real issue, and it's hardly one that should be nation-wide news.

It actually makes much more sense as a business model when you combine it with United Airline's plan for passenger loading: http://www.theonion.com/articles/united-…
Nov 5, 2012 Teshumai commented on Molly Moon's Baracky Road Ice Cream Does Not Benefit President Obama or Democratic Causes: What Do You Think?.
The beauty of having no profit is that this story could easily be rewritten as "Molly Moon donates 100% (with 10,000,000% matching) of proceeds to Obama with sales of Baracky Road, also to Romney, and to Ron Paul for good measure"
Oct 23, 2012 Teshumai commented on Mitt Romney Supporter Donald Trump Will Bravely Unearth the Obamas' Divorce Papers Tomorrow.
That's a boring surprise- I had this great image of Donald Trump declaring he was really Obama's father in his best Darth Vadar voice... (Which would give a whole new life to the birther theories, since Mr. Trump can't produce his long-form birth certificate.)

What's with the 18-30 year old voters- why are they so Romney oriented?
Sep 11, 2012 Teshumai commented on Mitt Romney in a Nutshell.
Actually, if he bothered to do a survey of his base, he would find that the vast majority of Chicago children are pro-strike and the extension of summer vacation. Why does Mitt Romney work against the children's interests so?
Aug 27, 2012 Teshumai commented on WA Catholic Church Begins Fundraising Directly for Anti-Gay Election PAC.
Actually, as a Catholic, this is the best news I've heard all day. It means I can put money in the collection basket knowing (hoping) it will go to paying the bills or buying new mats for the winter shelter or whatever, and not towards this campaign.
Aug 24, 2012 Teshumai commented on Bow Your Heads, for Count von Count Is Dead.
Wait, the count was a vampire- wasn't he already dead? Sesame Street really tended to gloss over this point....
Aug 16, 2012 Teshumai commented on DIY Gone Horribly, Horribly Wrong.
@35- at home we used the Readers Digest Condensed Books (thank you, Grandma) as building materials for more books shelves. Think cinder blocks and boards without the cinder blocks.

Wait, wait, the sun's out- I see shadows! Quick, we can all go burn our corneas!
