World To End Tomorrow - Poor and Minorities Affected Most

Jane Fonda once babbled about children starving to death in North Georgia, and Peter Jennings defended her statement on national television; but the truth is that no one is starving in America except by their own choice. And even then, it is unnecessary - a few more pounds might just make them more attractive not less.

For children especially, we have AFDC, free and reduced breakfast and lunch in the schools, and it doesn't even count against your food stamps (or whatever polite euphemism your states uses to disguise the charity they truly are).

Just remember that what passes for poor in this country would be considered rich in others.
