Regarding the complaint voiced by Robert Fowler on Aug. 10, I add my amen to his disgust with the free-lunch-program mentality.
It appears to me to be largely a false need, as we cafeteria workers in the public schools were continually dismayed that the same kids with the free lunch every day always brought their personal bag of chips to eat with their lunch.
We couldn't afford to buy those expensive bags of chips for our kids, but the free lunch kids enjoyed them every day!
