NPRÂ´s Patrick Center, reporting from Kent County, Michigan, on the suspension of the USDAÂ´s Commodity Supplemental Food Program:
Kent County’s Community Action Agency is recommending its seniors stretch the food they already have â€” by watering down milk and soup.
(via Joey Fishkin at Balkinisation)
The shutdown isnÂ´t really hurting anybody, of course. Stories like this are just lefty spin.
Note to literal-minded critics: the tasty ratburger is mine not CenterÂ´s or FishkinÂ´s, and itÂ´s hyperbolic commentary, not reporting.
FishkinÂ´s essay, on the decay of empathy under rising inequality, is worth your time.
