Save Berger cookies [Letter]

Ronald Reagan

I would like to support the fight to save the Berger cookie ("Don't take away my Berger cookies Nov. 29)!

Why is the government trying to invade every aspect of our lives? Yes, people should eat a more healthy diet, but when were cookies ever healthy in the first place? Berger cookies are not responsible for the obesity problems or the cardiovascular problems in the country. People eating too much and not moving are the issues here.

The government needs to allow good, hard-working people like the family that makes Berger cookies to earn an honest living! Berger cookies bring joy and happiness into many lives! Save the Berger cookies the way they are! Ronald Reagan said it well when he said, "I don't believe in a government that protects us from ourselves."

We don't need the government to regulate our desserts. We love our confections the way they are, and they aren't going to kill us. No one has eat the whole box in one sitting.
