business news in context, analysis with attitude

In the UK, the Sun reports that politicians and health officials are on the hunt against an old breed of business that has been identified as a new breed of public enemy.

Ice cream trucks.

Some officials apparently want to pass regulations banning such trucks from selling their wares anywhere near school properties.
KC's View:
It seems to us that kids today lose their innocence far too early, and that one of the most charming and innocent sounds of youth is the sound of the bell ringing on an ice cream truck as it slowly patrols neighborhood streets. Most of us can remember hearing the bell, and then running into the house to see if we had enough change to buy an ice cream, or enough charm to get a few quarters from our parents.

Maybe the politicians ought to pay more attention to getting rid of drug dealers and less time robbing our kids of the simple pleasures that are part of being young.
