Let me just say this - I'm utterly shocked to see that CBS news produced and ran this story.

And I'll add one thing - the next time you see the Federal Government try to do something to help you out, whether it's providing health care, student loans, mortgages or dietary advice, stop and ask yourself one question. Are Americans healthier in 2011 than they were when George McGovern's Senate Committee, against the advice of the dietary scientists who recognized that there was, at best, insufficient evidence for the recommendations, decreed that Americans should eat less fat and more whole grains? With close to forty years of hindsight, there is now overwhelming evidence that McGovern's recommendations were damaging to real people trying to live their lives well.

Unintended Consequences. Not just a good idea - it's the law...
