I'm very fond of political blogging, so I frequently miss out on the xanga action. Also, I typically read what is in front of my face (once again, I have forgotten how I get to that top blog page - it's always hit or miss - so I miss a lot.) Here is something I wrote at another site: (yes, I have a dark side...)
I’ve oftentimes wondered why my son refuses to eat the school lunches. I’ve also wondered why the hello they were throwin so much food away. (I have a friend who is a “lunch lady” and told me about this.) Then I came across this article: http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/OTUS/hungry-kids-grumble-healthy-school-lunches/story?id=17324285 Yep. It’s the Democratic passed 2010 Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act, championed by Michelle Obama (a model weight if I may say.) This Act is trying to be repealed by Republicans who are trying to pass the No Kids Hungry Act. Here’s why:
"We hear them complaining around 1:30 or 2:00 that they are already hungry," said Linda O'Connor, a high school English teacher at Wallace County High School in Sharon Springs, Kansas. "It's all the students, literally all the students... you can set your watch to it."
O'Connor teamed up with her hungry students and fellow teacher Brenda Kirkham to create a ballad to the growling stomachs that are now pestering her classroom. The YouTube song and dance video "We Are Hungry," set to the tune of Fun's "We Are Young," now has more than 108,000 hits.
Their video is awfully funny and very good. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2IB7NDUSBOo
No more sloppy-joes for you, kiddies!
Just outta curiosity; do y'all blog on other sites?
