Jeff and I have had frequent discussions regarding the addiction to sugar. This was underlined today when I was listening to Howie Carr on Boston talk radio this afternoon. He was doing his Police Blotter Fax Friday, which are comical stories that people fax in from their police blotters.
One of them today involved this kid who assaulted his mother because she would not let him eat any more cupcakes. So how many had the kid already consumed? Two, three? Try SIX! And he was making moves to power down ANOTHER SIX. When the mother finally said enough, he assaulted her and ultimately the police got involved. Sad.
