Record 31.8 million on food stamps




A record 31.8 million Americans received food stamps at the latest count, an increase of 700,000 people in one month with the United States in recession, government figures showed Thursday.

Food stamps, which help poor people buy groceries, are the major U.S. anti-hunger program, forecast to cost at least $51 billion in this fiscal year ending Sept. 30, up $10 billion from fiscal 2008.

Michelle Obama was at a soup kitchen I saw on the news thismorning.

During a short interview, she asked the patrons she hoped they liked her soup.

She got no response and had to raise her voice a bit and ask again.
Then she got a minimal acknowledgement.

Community Service is going to be her Fist-Lady thing.

I guess it's as good as the rehab first lady and other first lady involvements.

I guess 21st Century "Breadlines" may see more of her.
