Girl's lemonade stand shut down

This is so the poor girl understands what freedom is. So when she grows up, she'll know she's only allowed to breathe because she has permission, and calls it freedom. Love it or leave it.

    Omaha World Herald -

    CORALVILLE, Iowa (AP) — Police closed down a lemonade stand in Coralville last week, telling its 4-year-old operator and her dad that she didn't have a permit.

    An officer told Abigail Krutsinger's father Friday that she couldn't run the stand as RAGBRAI bicyclers poured into Coralville.

    A city ordinance says food vendors must apply for a permit and get a health inspection.

    Abigail's dad, Dustin Krutsinger, said the ordinance and its enforcers are going too far if they force a 4-year-old to abandon her lemonade stand.
