January's "Nanny of the Month:" No Singing or Dancing!

| by Reason Foundation

Past Reason.tv Nannies of The Month have included New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg (anti-salt, smoking, trans fat, you name it), a New York state senator who wanted to ban fish pedicures, and a Phoenix pol who banned churches from feeding the hungry on their own property.

So who is the first Nanny of The Month of this brand-new, sparking decade? Well, it's NOT Brownsville, Texas, for banning plastic shopping bags. And it's NOT Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-Calif.) for terminating trans fat in the Golden State.
