No lunch for you

Please sir, can I have some more? Some 50 elementary school students in Salt Lake City had their school lunches seized and thrown in the trash bin by school authorities because money was owed on their food accounts.

What’s the big deal? If the lunches consisted of hamburger gravy over instant mashed potatoes, they were headed for the garbage anyway.

Canada’s new “it” boy: Justin Bieber is supplanting Toronto Mayor Rob Ford as Canada’s No. 1 butt of all jokes, but that didn’t stop Hizzoner from rising to the baby-faced pop star’s defense, noting that he’s only 19.

We can only hope that Ford plans to grab the headlines back from Bieber by admitting he’s listened to the teen idol’s records while in a drunken stupor.

Let’s play double jeopardy: An Italian court convicted Seattle’s Amanda Knox of murder and sentenced her to 28 1/2 years in prison Thursday, making the score in that long-running legal battle Italian prosecutors 2, Knox 1.

Upon handing down the verdict, the Italians promptly remanded Knox’s case to Kangaroo Court.
