    L.A. Times: Lunch lady faces fine for feeding poor kids in Pennsylvania

    Lunch lady Angela Prattis thought she was just doing God's work, handing out free lunches to hungry children in a Pennsylvania neighborhood. But even acts of altruism, it seems, must bow to red tape. National outrage has erupted after Prattis found herself running afoul of Chester Township zoning laws and threatened with a $600 fine if she continued, according to NBC10 Philadelphia. Moreover, she faces a $1,000 fee if she wants to continue performing her good deeds, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

    wow. this is an unbelievable story. I think the courts should uphold the township only if they agreed to take over and fund the activities she was performing. What a collection of shmucks.

    This is why I support corporal punishment as a method of chastisement with respect to superannuated government thugs.

    First offense: 20 strikes Bastinado
    Second offense: 20 lashes, bucket of salt water, 48 hours in the stocks, public restricted to the throwing of rotten fruits and vegetables at offender
    Third offense: Summary execution by slow hanging from a lamp post nearest to the location of the offense, corpse to be tarred and left for a period of no less than eighteen months. Family within two generations forfeits all assets, with half going to the wronged party.

    Rather than wasting valuable petroleum products while driving up pillow prices, Celtic Whisper has been reading up on drawing & quartering. The results can still be gibbeted.
