Wow, what a downer.
Also for some fun with math 6 million hungry kids = 12 million parents not doing their job.
Your math is flawed. In reality 6 million kids probably don't have 12 million parents on hand to care for them. Most of them are from single parent households where the father has skipped. They're on welfare and food stamps which the single parent squanders. Maybe both parents skipped, on drugs or are in jail and Grandmama is taking care of them. The problem is not hungry kids, the problem is a breakdown in the family structure of our culture and welfare society.
