According to a segment I just heard on the BBC 1 out of 8 Americans is on food stamps (I doubt they made it up). Seriously I do not even know what to say about this one. The argument could be made (not sure if I agree) that giving some people a helping hand now and then is a good thing for the government to do. However 1 out of 8 people seems pretty ridiculous to me. Then again since 1 out of 10 (either a slightly fat one at 10.2 or missing a part of a limb at 9.7) workers is unemployed maybe it is just that our economy is doing horribly.
Green Shoots! How do you prepare green shoots in order to eat them? Because in addition to being unemployed apparently lots of folks are hungry.
