Amusing, But True...

In today's Jewish World Review, John Stossel has an amusing commentary on the grim realities of food labelling.

None of the food companies that used the deceptive labels would talk to me about this, which is too bad because I'd love to know how an olive company came up with 1.5 olives as its serving size. A jar of smaller olives, which lists 14 as a serving, seems a lot more honest. Who would ever eat 1.5 olives? The folks we talked to at the mall wouldn't. "What, are you going to throw away half of it?" one woman asked.

Read the column here.

I get his emails and he is so right. Too many big government oversight people doing a good job scaring people...and it's a waste of OUR money. Have you read his book? Its really good.

"Give Me A Break" is the title, right? It's now on my list(I'll be doing a lot of flying next month, at least 4 - 6 books' worth).I like a writer who can present his facts in a humorous fashion.
