If Supermarkets Were Like Public Schools

What if groceries were paid for by taxes, and you were assigned a store based on where you live? 

From the WSJ:
"No family would be permitted to get groceries from a public supermarket outside of its district. Fortunately, though, thanks to a Supreme Court decision, families would be free to shop at private supermarkets that charge directly for the groceries they offer. Private-supermarket families, however, would receive no reductions in their property taxes.

Of course, the quality of public supermarkets would play a major role in families' choices about where to live. Real-estate agents and chambers of commerce in prosperous neighborhoods would brag about the high quality of public supermarkets to which families in their cities and towns are assigned."
What do you think? Update: I'll post the results Monday morning. Promise.
