Yesterday in the San Jose Mercury News, columnist Joel Stein had a fantastic retort to some food companies’ recent capitulations to overzealous food activists. Our favorite part:
Protecting kids is a natural instinct, but as soon as they learn to type, they’re going to be exposed to more temptations — edible and otherwise — than their parents can control. I’d rather risk some fat kids than a whole generation so naive about marketing that by middle age they can still be manipulated by a dancing leprechaun.
