The Good, and the Bad, News on Hunger

The good: today the Senate, by a vote of 65-33, defeated a bid to cut back on SNAP (food stamps) - sanity reigns for a short time at least.
The bad: Arizona is now last (with Oregon) in the US in the percentage of kids suffering from hunger. While the percentage in the US is 21.6, in Arizona it's 28.8 (and growing).
