Tomorrow should be quite a lucrative day in the world of lemonade. It’s Lemonade Freedom Day, which is like some nationwide protest against governments shutting kids’ harmless little stands, and where people are encouraged to have their own lemonade stands, or at least support their neighborhood stands, throughout the day. There’s a heated debate over at between people who think the government should indeed send kids a message about food-safety laws and following rules, and those who think anyone who would prevent such a sweet, harmless thing is nothing short of demonic. It’s just like the pop-up debate, but dressed in OshKosh B’Gosh. [Forbes]
