I am going to paraphrase that and use it.

You people are getting it all wrong. Now leave me alone and let me finish eating my Big Mac.

Part of me loves this and agrees, but the other part does not think it's a fair criticism. Fawkes lived in a very different time. Also, part of Occupy's "thing" is that there is no identifiable leader. Anonymity, in a way, helps reinforce that.

I am allergic to the *absence* of peanuts and I *demand* that my special needs be catered to in every airplane, school, etc. that I visit.

amusing. but honestly, people with peanut allergies can become sick from particles in the air. 

I prefer to suffer without my salted peanuts than to have to administer an epi-pen to the person sitting next to me on the plane.

Doubtful. Some people really do have allergies but the way the whole anti-peanut crusade is going smacks of training people to submit to authority in one more way.

Last time I had to fly out to California, the flight attendants offerred a choice of peanuts or pretzels. Along with the all the extra stuff you have to pay for.

Peanuts or pretzels, a choice is good.  The problem is that the anti-peanut noisemakers are now pushing for (and in some cases actually getting) the airlines to ban peanuts on airplanes completely [http://goo.gl/dbd15].  So far, the DOT has not passed any regulations.

What concerns me is that peanuts are being treated like some sort of toxic substance, and a very small number of people are pushing for very draconian action.

I'll probably bring a large bag of peanuts with me the next time I fly, just to make a point.

well, when I read the death toll comparison between mahiuana and peanuts, I didn't think they would go thad far..

...which brings about another random musing:

"peanut allergy" is a very close anagram of "peanut gallery"

My adopted niece spent the whole day yesterday with her mother giving her antihistimines and monitoring her breathing b/c one of the grandmothers at her preschool decided to give her son a peanut snack. (it's like peanut-butter flavored cheetos). Abby ASKED if it had peanuts and they told her no. (My daughter was there, and that's what she reported.)

I've been rallying for the preschool to be peanut-free since the beginning of the year, because mistakes happen with 4-5 year olds. (18 kids)

Last year, my daughter took peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to preschool every day, and this year, we've been struggling to find lunches that she likes, but we're just not willing to take the chance (Abby is her best friend).

Great ... a peanut allergy from the peanut gallery.

It's really a shame that my kids don't like peanut butter. It would be so easy to pack lunches.

("I like peanuts ... and I like butter ... but I do not like peanut butter ... weird!")

One of the more successful lunches here is omelet in a pita (though you need real pita, not the Sahara crap that's dry enough to be croutons when you buy it)

And every time I make an omelet, I remember not to burn it b/c of the whole raped by a walrus(?) thing...

Kinneret likes cheese. Sometimes she will take cheese and tomato sauce as a kind of 'cold pizza.'

My mom used to make us cream cheese and jelly which I thought was vile.

Of course, if we could send meat, my kids would be in 7th heaven. They both love smoked turkey breast with mustard and ketchup.
