Seniors balk at ban on free doughnuts
They wore sandwich boards proclaiming, "Give Us Our Just Desserts" and "They're Carbs, Not Contraband."

At issue is a decision to refuse free doughnuts, pies and breads that were being donated to senior centers around Putnam County. Officials were concerned that the county was setting a bad nutritional precedent by providing mounds of doughnuts and other sweets to seniors. (AP Photo/The Journal News, Joe Larese )
I have a hard enough time listening to Mocha-momma when she tries to dictate what I'm putting into my mouth. "Did you check your blood sugar level; you can only have it if it's under 120."
No way I would put up with some dimwitted, low-level county employee trying to dictate what I'll eat. I wouldn't put up with it while I'm 50; I sure wouldn't put up with it in my 70's, like these people. I can't remember which blog I read that always talks about "the nanny state," that's what this is.
First it's going to be sweets; next thing you know they'll outlaw blogging as detrimental to your health. They need to nip this in the bud now.
