“These are elementary school kids. They don’t need to be worried about finances. They need to be worried about what grade they got in spelling.”

Truer words were never spoken. What a great guy! I'm proud he is a Texan.

Touching report, not much talking and hesitation.

Just do it, as we "used" to say.

I didn't read of any folks from Utah stepping up to the plate on this matter.

"I didn't read of any folks from Utah stepping up to the plate on this matter". You've allowed expediency to override propriety with your comments. I am proud of the action of that fine gentleman in Houston. Could it be that a good Samaritan in Utah couldn't find a plate to step up to. Maybe all the plates were thrown in the garbage can as well.

This is one of the saddest stories I have ever read. I would like to go on record as being willing to pay for any grade school student who cannot afford lunch in any Utah school. I have talked to several others who are also willing to "save the children" when it comes to obtaining a healthy lunch at school. My offer is serious...there are many people in Utah who are outraged at what happened at this school and the weak explanation of how it happened. The good people in Utah are more than willing to help...we just didn't know there was a problem. Bob Tanner.

Great response to a aordid situation. Children suffering in our state and nation is another indication of the dumbing down of our culture.

When I was in grade school, I very often did not have money for lunch. Now, there are lunch programs to pay for the lunch of certain groups of entitled. Other groups of children are left out. Actually, the federal government is helping one group of ethnics at the expense of others. There is a war on children being played to behavior modify acceptance of certain groups in our society. With children below a certain age, the federal government should guarantee free lunches for all and not just for a select group of entitled.

Mr. Thompson is a real standup guy doing this for the 60 kids in Houston. I wonder if the Utah kids lunch accounts are still delinquent?
