Looking over some of the comments on this blog that people have shared with me, I have learned a great deal. I appreciate the personal stories and the personal insights. Our goal for this "food stamp challenge" was to spark a real discussion about the real life difficulties that many in America face in trying to put food on their tables. I am encouraged that such a discussion is beginning -- as evidenced by the many postings on this blog. We need to make sure it continues well after this week-long food stamp challenge ends. That's the way we're going to change policy.
One last thing...it's day three and so far so good.
