More trouble for Kenneth Melson?

Things must already have been looking pretty grim for BATFE Acting Director Kenneth Melson. Even though it's clear that he was following orders from above in the "Project Gunwalker" fiasco, "Just following orders" didn't work at Nuremberg, and it has no business working now.

On the bright side, though, if he could manage to stay out of jail, a Clean Up ATF quote I saw at No Lawyers - Only Guns and Money made it look as if he at least had a new career lined up:

So it looks like acting director Melson, breeder of Portuguese water dogs and Captain Crunch stunt double . . .
Cap'n Crunch Stunt Double--brilliant!

Now, though, it looks as if the Obama administration might be moving to take even that away from him:
The Obama administration is after your Lucky Charms, or at least your children’s. The public comment period closed on July 14 for a set of “voluntary” guidelines for the marketing of food to children. If adopted, these rules will transform the advertising of breakfast cereals.

. . .

These foods may still appear in grocery stores, but not in brightly colored packages adorned with cartoon characters. Toucan Sam, Cap’n Crunch, and Tony the Tiger will have to retire.
Poor guy just can't catch a break.
