Big Brother in the School Lunchroom?
On the other side of the lunchtime spectrum, parents of kids in five San Antonio, TX elementary schools can now know EXACTLY what their kids are eating thanks to a $2 million federal grant that has paid for cameras in these school's cafeterias. The high-tech cameras take a picture of what each child put on the tray when they go through the lunch line and then what is left over after lunch. Then, the pictures are analyzed and the nutritional content of what the child actually ate is calculated.
Seriously? Our nation is facing a $14 trillion debt and were spending money on this?
