San Francisco does it again with a whacked-out law to ban Happy Meals. Supervisor Bevan Dufty, who provided the swing vote, represents the arrogant majority who will protect us and our children from ourselves. She says critics should not dismiss the legislation as a nutty effort by San Franciscans. “I do believe the industry is going to take note of this. I don’t care how much they say, ‘It’s San Francisco, they’re whacked out there.’ ” This law will have no effect on childhood obesity or children’s health but ignorant administrators are never daunted by facts. They’re too whacked out.
The Supervisors have now laid bare
Their desire to stand up and declare,
It’s true what they say
And not just a cliche,
‘It’s San Francisco, they’re wacked out there”
