Fight the dessert police: Hold a bake sale

Holiday bake sales banned? Yes, really. If you haven’t heard the story, Michael Graham lambastes the Nanny State food cops:

Don’t plan on picking up your Christmas cookies at the annual church bake sale in Salem, MA this year. Why not?

The Salem government has banned them. That’s right: Banned all bake sales. Too dangerous.

The local board of health has voted to ban all bakes sales by churches, schools and senior centers unless they purchase city-issued food permit. And all the food must be prepared in a city-licensed kitchen.

A town in Massachusetts–the land of government-authorized gay marriage, sanctuary cities and voting rights for non-citizens–has criminalized your grandmother’s oatmeal cookies.

The ban began with one overzealous and arrogantly self-important town bureaucrat, Salem Health Agent Joanne Scott. She told the local paper that “it’s her job to interpret the food code for the city and she exempts only places serving baked goods within their own closed community, not to the general public.”

In fact, Agent “007” Scott is such a zealot that, when she heard about a bake sale at a local senior center, she ordered them to either comply with the proper government authorization–or shut down. Because the Salem Senior Center doesn’t even HAVE a kitchen (supporters donated cakes and cookies baked at home) the bake sale was cancelled. Many schools and churches cancelled traditional holiday bake sales, too.

Same thing’s going on in Maricopa County, Arizona.

It’s not too late to send a message to the overzealous baked goods grinches and treat them to a batch of some of the cookies mentioned in our recipe thread here.

Revenge is sweet.
