No more buffet for you!

A Des Moines woman, her boyfriend and two kids, got kicked out of the Dragon House buffet for throwing away too much food. Thinking she was treated shabbily she then went crying to the media. I see it as a convenient metaphor for a lot of things, for example parents who want to give their kids everything. Doesn't matter whether it's egg rolls they throw away or new schools their communities can't afford.

Some curious commenters at Althouse Googled up some info that suggests the couple may be doctor$. "And you know kids," said the mom. "They won't always eat everything and they want something else." I wonder how that would go down in China where they aren't famous for throwing away food (and money).
