If you make Skittles illegal, only criminals will have Skittles

The Nanny State really needs a time out.  Just sit in the corner until you realize what you did wrong:
Michael Sheridan was stripped of his title as class vice president, barred from attending an honors student dinner and suspended for a day after buying a bag of Skittles from a classmate.

The New Haven school system banned candy sales in 2003 as part of a districtwide school wellness policy, said school spokeswoman Catherine Sullivan-DeCarlo.
If John Lynch and Bob Clegg wants to take us a on trip down Wellness Boulevard, it's good to know where we will end up.  You can have my Skittles when you pry them from my cold, dead hands.
