vs what happened way back in your days of hunger and sorrowful experience, Salty.
trouble is, old girl, it was not even a generation ago. and yes it was so sorrowful I almost cried when I first thought the school lunches were cut immediately. no child in America should have to sit in a class as one of 15-18 kids who are eating that day and had breakfast while 10-15 of the rest of them are asleep at their desk dreaming of food.
