    Not the drug but the soft drink.

    This was news to me, but apparently it’s true. Otherwise, this quote from a Seattle-area edu-crat would have me wondering whether he’d been drinking snorting Coke coke.

    The school board this month unanimously approved a ban on the sale of all foods with high levels of sugar and fat, and it is prohibiting exclusive contracts with any given beverage vendor.

    “These policies are amongst the strongest in the country, and confirm the Board’s commitment to eliminating barriers to learning by creating a healthy nutrition environment in all 100 schools,” the district Web page says.

    I haven’t been following this much lately, but I recall that Seattle was one of the school districts targeted by terrorist lawyer John Banzhaf. He sent a letter threatening to sue the school board if they didn’t meet his demand to ban all sodas and other fattening foods. Banzhaf admitted he didn’t have an actual plaintiff, but said he’d find one if necessary. This is exactly the type of action that should result in immediate disbarment.

    Ahh..Seattle. I grew up near there, and I miss the area, but not all the nonsense.
