Nanny of the Month: No Toy for You!

Reason TV has a special series of videos called "Nanny of the Month". Every month they highlight ridiculous laws and regulations that spring up all over the country. This month they selected the City of San Francisco and city Supervisor Eric Mar (who sponsored the measure) for banning toys in children's meals unless the calorie and fat content is low enough.

The best (most nonsensical) quote comes from Mr. Mar in this article:

"We're part of a movement that is moving forward an agenda of food justice..."

Food Justice? Give me a break! (Apologies to John Stossel)

You can't make this stuff up. :) How about if parents are responsible for their children's health? What a novel idea.
