    For people too poor to eat at a restaurant or afford a decent home, King said, anti-discrimination laws were hollow.

    I was recently assisting a colleague in analyzing a survey she had done in rural southern communities.  She was using a standard instrument but her reliability stats were wildly at variance with previous (northeastern) studies. When we isolated the problem items we found that they related to knowledge about the sugar content of common restaurant items. Follow-up revealed that a great majority of her respondents had not, over the past year, eaten a single meal in a restaurant.

    It makes one think.

    I want my country back. NOW!
