This article just totally takes the cake (pun fully intended). These are donated food items, for senior citizens, for geebus sake. Now I can see throwing out the old, stale, or moldy cakes, pies, and donuts. But to take all of it away from them just because someone in charge thinks it isn't healthy? WTF!!!!!
Penalizing all seniors because a few have heart disease (and whose business is it if someone with heart disease wants to eat a couple of donuts) is just totally wrong. And yeah, if the seniors really want a donut, no one is stopping them from buying them on their own (if they can get to the store, and if they can afford it). Talk about a nanny government.
Since when does food have a moral value? I hate the obsession with good/bad food labels. Food is food, for pete's sake. There is nothing intrinsically good or evil about any of it. Granted, some foods are healthier than others, but NO ONE has the right to tell ANYONE what they can and cannot eat. And for me, if I live to be 86 years old and someone tries to take donuts, cakes, and pies from me, they will probably end up getting hit with my cane or run over by my 4-wheel drive wheelchair.
