An FYI to Houston readers – I had a column in the last issue (November 25, 2010) of the Examiner newspapers making the case for getting birthday treats out of schools. If you’re a regular TLT reader and/or read my recent guest blog post on The Wellness Bitch on the same subject, this will all be familiar ground.
I also just realized that an excerpt from my first post about Sarah Palin’s sweets-in-schools protest appeared on the Atlantic Monthly’s “Atlantic Wire” blog the same day it appeared here, which was sort of cool.
But don’t worry – I have no present plans to beat the treats-in-schools topic into the ground any further. And all this coverage of my anti-cupcake stance is pretty ironic, really, given my intense love for them outside the school setting. I just hope my rhetoric doesn’t result in my being barred from my favorite cupcake bakeries — that would be much too high a price to pay for my principles.
