Dan Goodman's prediction and politics journal.

Saturday, January 24, 2004

After much heated debate on the house floor, legislation was passed today to allow a growing number of families to cook meals for their families in their homes. The children must have annual physical examinations to assure proper growth and weight gain. Attempts to require weekly meal plans and monthly kitchen inspections were voted down.

A spokesperson from the National Association of Nutritionists (NANs) condemns this decision. “These children are being denied the rich socialization and diversity that is an essential part of the eating process. Without the proper nutritional background, it is impossible for the average person to feed their own children. We, as child advocates, see this as a step backwards and speak out for the sake of the children who cannot speak for themselves.”

"Brooklyn" is becoming a popular first name in England. This probably explains why:

Romeo, the name David and Victoria Beckham gave their second son, was less popular, with only 21 boys sharing his name. Their other son has had more of an influence, with 86 baby boys and 19 baby girls being named Brooklyn.
