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