Tuesday Manifesto Nibbles

Nobody sleeps on Tuesday.  Herewith, the Decent Manifesto grows.

Entitlements.  If you signed a contract that guaranteed certain things like pensions, you deserve them — if you rightfully earned it, no one can rightfully take that away from you — even if that contract was for life.  That’s the decent thing to do.  But if you merely expected it to last forever: sorry, times have changed.

All chain restaurant waiters and counter personnel will be trained in two simple and decent reactions: If a customer orders a meal that collectively contains more than 60% of the RDA of calories, fat, salt or cholesterol, they will wince and maybe make a little throw-up sound.  If the order is for a child, they will give the parents a look, as if to say, “really?”
