Food sold on school lunch lines and in vending machines will need to meet the new nutrition guidelines, which are still in the works. This includes possible prohibition of high-sugar sodas and candy, while less-than-nutritious favorites like pizza would have healthier ingredients, the Times reported.

But in part to help pay for the program, the Senate also approved $14 billion in cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), more commonly referred to as food stamps.

11 Bands That Skipped Woodstock For Incredibly Lame Reasons

Ian Anderson explained why he and the other Jethro Tull guys didn’t want to play.

Quote…

I asked our manager, Terry Ellis, “Well, who else is going to be there?” And he listed a large number of groups who were reputedly going to play, and that it was going to be a hippie festival, and I said, “Will there be lots of naked ladies? And will there be taking drugs and drinking lots of beer, and fooling around in the mud?” Because rain was forecast. And he said, “Oh, yeah.” So I said, “Right. I don’t want to go.” Because I don’t like hippies, and I’m usually rather put off by naked ladies unless the time is right.
