Healthy kids grow up to be better killers?

Why is it important to provide healthy diets for kids in schools? Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has an answer--

"If we don't address this issue, we're going to have a shrinking number of young people who are qualified for military service, and when you have an all-volunteer military, you have to have a large pool to draw from," he said in an interview following his speech. "It's a national security issue, as well as an economic and health care issue."

Ag chief: youth obesity issue of national security

I kinda like Tom, but seriously, can't we just say we want healthy kids because...we want healthy kids?

Small government

Republicans Oppose D.C. Marijuana Legalization
-- New York Times

So the GOP is against D.C. legalizing marijuana because Republicans stand for small, unobtrusive government that respects the rights of individuals to make their own choices.

Sure. That makes sense.

My favorite coming-out story

My friend Andrew was worried about coming out to his parents because of their strict Roman Catholic beliefs. He rehearsed various ways of telling them with me, but didn't feel comfortable with any of them and kept putting it off.

During his senior year in college he got a boyfriend and decided that it was time to tell the parents. He went home over Thanksgiving break and told them this--

Mom, Dad...I've met someone very special and I'm in love. I want to introduce you, but I'm worried you may not be happy. This is hard but I just have to say it...he's not Catholic.

Mom and Dad, according to Andrew, took it far better than he'd imagined.
