School lunch scanner gives children mark of The Beast

TO Moss Bluff Elementary school, Lake Charles, Louisiana, where fears abound that the new dinnertime palam scanner is turning the children to the Devil.

Says parent Mamie Sonnier, sounding not a little like Annie Wilkes.

 “I was very, very mad. Disappointed.”

She, like all parents at the school, had received a letter explaining the introduction of a palm vein scanner, to speedily identify students qualifying for a free school meal . Says Sonnier:

“As a Christian, I’ve read the Bible, you know go to church and stuff. I know where it’s going to end up coming to, the mark of the beast. I’m not going to let my kids have that.”

School principal Charles Caldarera is sympathetic:

“I think some people feel it’s something with the Bible, mark of the beast. It’s technology that is used throughout our lives. Everywhere.”

Be afraid.
