Who else would fill a school bus with 57 tons of sand to represent the amount of sugar kids in school consume per week from flavored milk other than food crusader Jamie Oliver? Unfortunately, this "stunt" didn't garner the attention he might have hoped for, only "20 people and one journalist" showed up to the First Lutheran Church of Carson where the bus was stationed. "L.A. is not on my side. They've got their fingers in their ears -- la, la, la -- they're not having it...I don't want to winge about turnout... but maybe L.A. was a big mistake." Better luck next time?
