Food for the Needy

Your article about leftover laws left me amazed and concerned.

It's clear to me that the health laws in Los Angeles County were written for a "best of all possible worlds" situation.

In a world filled with hunger they are no longer realistic.

The simple truth is if your children haven't eaten in three days you don't give a damn if that bucket of chicken is two hours or three hours old.

Common sense would tell us it takes no more time to get that food to a homeless shelter than it would to take it on a family picnic at the beach.

It's time to rethink the health laws and bring them into step with the problems of the real world.
