Letters to the editor on food stamps and abortion lawsuits

Columnist David Brooks said over the summer that he was prepared to write a scathing column decrying the increase in the demand for food stamps in this country, until he examined the facts. What Brooks found was a tremendous increase in the number of hungry people in this, the richest nation on Earth. The majority of those who receive food stamps are children, the elderly, the handicapped and the working poor. Knowing the facts, Brooks did not write that column but discussed his sad discovery of the increase in real hunger in our country.
