Going hungry

I'm proud of our governor for doing a <href="http://www.nytimes.com/2007/05/01/us/01stamps.html?_r=1&oref=slogin>this</a>.

He grew up in a Catholic orphanage, so he has a better understanding of want than most people. I sometimes wish he was more of a leader (especially a few years ago when our schools were suffering) but on this, he definitely put his $21 where his mouth was.

When I was a kid, I think we qualified for food stamps, but we never took them. There was always food on the table, although maybe not a lot, and maybe not balanced. But food.
