Imagine taking your kids out for a nice Sunday afternoon Easter egg hunt. You load up your two young sprouts (2 & 4) and drive over to the PEZ headquarters where 9,000 eggs have been hidden for your children's enjoyment.
As you pull up what you see shocks you. The Easter egg field has been transformed into a battlefield with small children, bloodied and bruised, cry out in terror as parents run from one concealed location to another like it's a black Friday sale.
Such was the scene at the recent PEZ Easter celebration. What was supposed to be a fun event for the kids was turned on its head not by greedy, entitled children but by their parents. You wonder why we have college kids crying about "safe space" violations after someone writes "Trump 2016" in chalk. Look no further than the fields of PEZ and the parents that raised them.
From there we turn to politics. Bernie swept the west and now lays his sights on New York in the hope that he can mount a defense against Hillary and sway some superdelegates over to his camp.
I'll also spend some time talking minimum wage. It's been a while since we had a discussion on the subject and I think it's worth bringing back into the stack.
