For some people, that's a feature, not a bug. Underclasses provide cheap labor, buy Chinese-made trash at Wal-Mart, and don't make waves as long as there's Facebook and Jersey Shore to keep them entertained (along with the perpetual lie that they, too, have a chance to become part of the 1% if they keep voting to keep taxes low and--again--don't make waves).

Is this another example of that "compassionate conservatism" we keep ... actually, I guess we *don't* hear so much about that these days. Wonder why?

Really? Because that makes so much sense, to let children go hungry and become malnourished, so that they have difficulties in school, thus ensuring that we have an under-performing workforce for many years into the future. Smart policy.

A contractual prohibition on improvements? Unbelievable. Though I'm reminded of a story I saw earlier today about how South Korea requires Internet Explorer for e-commerce.

This is one of the many places where archaic statutes and practices designed in the 20th century continue to stymie the ability to solve problems with 21st century solutions.
