Somehow not discussed at the beltway cocktail parties

Funny that this:

A new report from the hunger relief charity Feeding America throws the nation’s struggle with hunger into an even starker light. The report, titled “Map the Meal Gap 2014,” broke the USDA’s data down county by county, giving a more nuanced picture of food insecurity. The report reveals that there are 16 counties in the U.S. with more than 100,000 “food insecure” children — a number you might expect to see in a developing country rather than the world’s wealthiest nation.

Is never seemingly thought of, as having any relation to this:

In the past 10 years, student debt has tripled in the United States, from $364 billion to more than $1.2 trillion. That’s more than Americans owe on credit cards or auto lines.

Elizabeth Warren would like to try to alleviate some of this unspoken correlation.

But obviously she’s not a “serious person” [i.e. wants reform that would help people], so there’s that.

The Roundup



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
