Hunger and appetites

South Dakota Republican U.S. Senate candidate Annette Bosworth in an Internet posting:
“THE FOOD STAMP PROGRAM IS ADMINISTERED BY THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE. THEY PROUDLY REPORT THAT THEY DISTRIBUTE FREE MEALS AND FOOD STAMPS TO OVER 46 MILLION PEOPLE ON AN ANNUAL BASIS. MEANWHILE, THE NATIONAL PARK SERVICE, RUN BY THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE, ASKS US, ‘PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE ANIMALS.’ THEIR STATED REASON FOR THIS BEING THAT ‘THE ANIMALS WILL GROW DEPENDENT ON THE HANDOUTS, AND THEY WILL NEVER LEARN TO TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES. THAT CONCLUDES TODAY’S LESSON. . . .”
. . . . as corporate supporters nodded knowingly, and went back to their troughs.
