So Lagniappe and I were perusing the news on Drudge today when we saw this article from the Financial Times entitled: World's Hungry 'close to One Billion'. Apparently food prices are rising around the world and this is pushing more and more people into a food deficit.
Well that's sad. It really is.
But then I saw this other story a little lower down on Drudge's home page. it was about how Oprah Winfrey is all upset because she's packing in the excess calories and is back up to 200 pounds. Oh, pity poor, fat, richer-than-hell Oprah...
But then it dawned on me that if we could somehow keep Oprah away from our nation's food supplies, we could probably feed a couple of those billion starving folks out there.
It's a small step, but still a step. Let's muzzle Oprah and start feeding a poor third-world family today!
