Pack a lunch

Memo to Jarrett Barrios: If you don't like what your son is served for lunch in school, pack him something.

The ability of Massachusetts politicians to generate national ridicule for this state is renowned. Michael Dukakis and the tank will always be No. 1, though Paul Tsongas in a Speedo should never be that far behind. Bill Weld's full-clothed plunge into the Charles proves bipartisanship lives when it comes to wacky headlines.

But for sheer imagery nothing matches Barrios' call to limit school servings of Marshmallow Fluff in schools -- and Kathi-Anne Reinstein retort calling for making the Fluffernutter the official state sandwich.

You can't make this stuff up -- no matter how hard we try. So, which one is fluff and which one is nuts?
