“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
dan 76"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
May God bless this Man from Texas. This is how America should behave.
Thank you guy from Texas!
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?
