Doesn't PC always inevitably come to bite itself in the a**?

Via the New York Times: Well-Intentioned Food Police May Create Havoc With Children's Diets. My favorite paragraph:

I fear there's something else at work — a fear borne out by a flier my fifth grader brought home saying that at the monthly pizza hot lunch, no child would be allowed to buy a second slice of pizza. The district says the new ruling is to avoid bad feelings caused by "inequities": if everyone can't have extra helpings, no one can.

But that isn't really part of the article's main thrust. Read the whole thing.
