I tend to chafe when Michelle Obama and a "panel of experts" tells me I need to reduce my caloric intake. And I get downright nervous when these experts start telling restaurants how much they should be allowed to serve us. But the case against the nanny state has just been dealt a blow in the form of Big Top Donut. And if you think that looks eerily familiar, that's because it is. Remember Big Top Cup Cake?
