If the situation didn't carry lethal potential, the nut jokes would fly. But increasing numbers of children do have life-threatening allergies to peanuts and other foods. And, unfortunately, some schools have overreacted in a way that's a little, well, crazy. The food wars flared this fall in Walnut Creek, Calif., where parents railed against an elementary school's peanut ban. It was imposed because of a kindergartner's allergy to nuts including peanuts.

Joe Kidwell kept warm through three Alaskan winters by humming "Summertime" while on ski patrol for the U. S. Army. But he recently got the chills singing it at a Van Nuys music school where such pop icons as Linda Ronstadt and Barry Manilow have taken classes. "Summertime, and the living is easy," croaked Kidwell, 21, wide-eyed and trembling slightly with stage fright during his first performance for fellow students in a class at Grove School of Music.

It's big, it's yellow and it stops at high schools. This school bus, however, is out to deliver a message, not students. It's a 45-foot, traveling TV production facility, a high-concept "rolling billboard" for C-SPAN, cable's public-affairs network. The $500,000 "C-SPAN School Bus" left Washington on Nov. 1 on an eight-month barnstorming tour of the country, planning to hit 100 schools in 85 communities.
