Pity the poor tomato. It gets no respect from the government.
The tomato is once again in the spotlight, this time in the form of tomato sauce. By smearing two ounces of tomato sauce onto a pizza, our learned Congress has transformed pizza into a vegetable. That decision is part of the $11 billion National School Lunch Program that was included in the FY 2012 Agriculture Appropriations Bill signed by President Obama on November 18, 2011.
Instead of tears streaming down on their pizzas, the pizza pushers dispatched their lobby locusts to Washington to successfully perpetuate their pizza paradise in the schools.
