Kids at a Utah Elementary School received quite a shock this week during lunch, when school officials tossed their lunches in the garbage. The reason? Their parents hadn't paid the school, so the kids had negative balances for their lunch accounts.
This is a situation that will never happen to me as I'm am waiting every afternoon between 3:10 & 3:20 at my son Dylan's school bus drop off point. This is the policy of General Herkimer Elementary.

If you're a member of the catholic faith you know what a sacrilege is. Wikipedia tells us that a sacrilege is any transgression against what is seen as the virtue of religion.
