Well, that is a good idea, but wasn't there a case just recently about a lunch lady throwing out a bagged lunch and the school charging the parent for the meals served to replace it...???

No, they should be served prison food... ;)

I am sure the Congress is following the guidelines when lobbyists wine and dine them at Charlie Palmer.

Following the "rules" doesn't necessarily make it right or ethical...
