Today, Lynn Swann, chair of The Presidentís Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, appeared at a news conference with National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) to plead for programs to stop schools from kicking vending machines out of school.If President Bush really means what he says about reducing childhood obesity, he should fire Swann immediately.

    i think that Swann should not be fired. Who says the schools have to fill vending machines with junk food? Thousands of dollars are made through vending machines if kids had a yummy healthy chioce vending machines wouldnt be bad. What about nutritous fruit snacks, crackers, bars, and sugar free gum, the healthy chioce doesnt mean no vending machines it means no junk food
