    A woman’s Facebook post claiming to have used breast milk while baking brownies for a school bake sale has garnered international outrage. Although the claim in the post has not yet been verified, a Facebook page called “Sanctimommy” received thousands of shares for the bizarre rant. According to the post, a woman tried posting three separate times about making brownies using breast milk for a school bake sale. The woman states other mothers found out about the breast milk and are “blowing it way out of proportion”:
  • Collingswood mayor says schools' Call 911 policy dropped: It's 'fixed, finished, done.'

    A controversial policy that required Collingswood public schools to call police for nearly every incident of student misbehavior has been "reversed," Mayor James Maley said. The change comes after parents complained that their children, some as young as 7, were questioned by law enforcement for incidents such as roughhousing on the way to the cafeteria, allegedly making a racist comment at a third-grade class party, and a playground fight between two middle school boys. Parents did not receive any formal notification of that increase until School Board President David Routzahn and Police Chief Kevin Carey each put out a statement...

    During an end-of-the-year class party at a New Jersey elementary school, a 9-year-old boy said something about brownies and was subsequently questioned by a police officer who was called by the school to investigate an incident of racism. It was another student that accused the boy of saying something "racist," but the boy's mother said he was talking about "snacks, not skin color," according to "He said they were talking about brownies. Who exactly did he offend?" the mother, Stacy dos Santos, asked incredulously. When the boy's father was contacted later in the day, he was informed that the...

    LANSING -- The Michigan Senate passed a bill allowing up to three fundraising bake sales in public schools per week, providing a way around federal health standards that banned them. brownies. State Sen. Patrick Colbeck, R-Canton Township, introduced Senate Bill 109, which passed 36-1, with one senator excused from voting. Colbeck said Boy Scouts in his district asked him why the state banned bake sales in schools. After looking into it further, he realized Michigan had not approved exemptions from the federal Smart Snacks in School standards that disqualify most bake sale items. "(This bill is a) common sense change...

    It's never too early for any parent to instill their ignorance and prejudices into their children.  Deciding that the civic values of the Girl Scouts1 weren't good enough for their girls, the "Radical Brownies of Oakland" have stepped up to form their own independent group dedicated to teaching girls their important values. Christin Ayers for KPIX in San Fran reports: After the recent Black Lives Matter protests, there is a new brownie troop in Oakland. Instead of selling cookies, they are spreading a message. On a Saturday afternoon in Oakland, a handful of 8 to 10 year old girls are...

    Imagine a social-justice version of the Girl Scouts.In Oakland, California, one alternative scout troop is far more socially active than their counterparts across the globe—and they’re not affiliated with the Girl Scouts. They call themselves, “Radical Brownies.” Their mission? “The Radical Brownies empower young girls of color so that they step into their collective power, brilliance and leadership in order to make the world a more radical place.” There are no badges for stitching, taking care of pets or being a good neighbor. Radical Brownies “badges earned are custom-made,” and “reflect our social justice and culturally-inclusive values.” Badges include Radical...

    HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Three Houston police officers are under investigation after claims they got high while on duty. And the claim, made by a man accused of drug possession, are backed up with something undeniable -- the words of the officers themselves. It sort of jumps off the page. "'So high' spaced out: h i g h" defense attorney Daniel Cahill said. The words of a Houston police officer about an hour after arresting Nicholas Hill for marijuana possession. "It was actually about 10 or 11 at night," Hill said. Hill was at his Atascocita apartment with friends late one...

    Cheech and Chong are back, and they're pitching "magic brownies" - for General Mills. The stars of 1980s stoner comedies are featured in a funny promotion for Fiber One brownies, a new high-fiber snack targeted at aging baby boomers. The online-only commercial resembles a movie trailer, and the twist comes at the end: the "magic" ingredient turns out to be fiber, not marijuana. "Fiber - because now that you're getting older, you need a new kind of magic from your brownies," the announcer says. Chong's response: "This is the weirdest movie ever, man." The ad campaign began when the General...

    Public health advocates and some mayors are sounding the alarm over Lazy Cakes, a brownie adorned with a lackadaisical cartoon character and laced with a powerful sleep aid that has sold millions nationwide. “Children are attracted to brownies,” said Dr. Caroline Apovian, director of the Nutrition and Weight Management Center at Boston Medical Center. “I don’t think it’s appropriate to put herbal things that are actually drugs in brownies or food items that are attractive to children. I think that’s heinous.” One Lazy Cake, which is wrapped in plastic with a photo of a smiling cartoon brownie, contains 8 mg...

    On Monday, July 12th Michelle Obama addressed the NAACP and she spoke at length about her "Let's Move" program, which targets childhood obesity. "To address this challenge, we need to be honest about how we got here. The way we live today is very different from the way we grew up. Fewer children are walking or biking to school, more families are eating on the run, and children are watching more TV than playing outside." Here's my answer to Michelle:

    Former Sen. John Edwards said at a Hurricane Katrina conference he would propose what he called "Brownie's Law" requiring that qualified people, not political hacks, lead key federal agencies. Edwards, who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, drew laughter when he spoke on Monday of the proposal at the "Hope and Recovery Summit" ahead of the two-year anniversary of the storm on Wednesday. "It's an absolute travesty to have people who are essentially political hacks in a very responsible position," he told the audience at the University of New Orleans. "Brownie" refers to Michael Brown, who was head of the...

    DEARBORN, Mich. -- A police officer who admitted taking marijuana from criminal suspects and baked it into brownies with his wife will avoid criminal charges. The police department's decision not to pursue a case against former policeman Edward Sanchez left a bad taste in the mouth of at least one city official, who vowed to investigate. "If you're a cop and you're arresting people and you're confiscating the marijuana and keeping it yourself, that's bad. That's real bad," said City Councilman Doug Thomas. Sanchez, who resigned last year from the department in this Detroit suburb, declined comment Wednesday. Police Commander...
