It is beyond me why groceries for one person - one healthy person - should run over $50 a week. I could buy the cheap white bread, the iceberg lettuce, the jellybeans - but no, I try to be healthy, and buy the whole grain bread, the dark green salad, the gallons of skim milk and orange juice, the dark chocolate, the high-fiber waffles - and my babysitting check is gone again. Honestly, shouldn't it be reversed? I bet if there were an overnight switch, and the healthy stuff cost less while the bad-for-you stuff cost more, that there would be a lot fewer sick people in this country.

Bad-for-you stuff that costs more than cheaper, healthier stuff:

Alcohol
Tobacco
Illegal drugs
Pornography
Sports cars
SUVs
Religion
Fraternities & Sororities
Phone sex

And that's just a short list off the top of my head. Unfortunately, niche markets usual result in higher prices ... and healthy food is still a niche market in this glorious land of fat-asses .... ;-)
