I'm all about online shopping. No crowds, no annoying sales people, sometimes no tax and shipping, and no wasting gas going to the store

Seems SA drivers aren't happy with only driving like crap on the roads now. I had to step back not once, but twice today while walking through a parking lot. First one was in AR in front of BAM when some fool driving about 35 while talking on the phone almost hit me and instead of slowing down he just drove around me. Second was a woman, talking on her phone, in the Portranco HEB+ parking lot. Once again she was driving at least 30 and didn't even bother to swerve. I swear I'm going to start carrying a baseball bat or a metal cane with me from now on and I'm going to hit them. anybody know if that's legal? it'll be for self defense of course. this is freaking crazy.

I don't know who picked the picture for this article, but it doesn't lend it much credence.. looks to me like absolutely no food is out of reach

This looks interesting--and I especially like the part about the tribute to the men and women serving in the Armed Forces. I love Fbg anyway--great little town!

I gotta remember to tell Paka--I think she'd like this!

Was that story suppose to elicit sympathy? All it did was make me disgusted. They need to get off their steadily growing butts and get a job.

It's no wonder the van broke down having to carry all of that all the time. Why is it that they show poor, homeless people in Africa or other less developed countries and they are people with only skin and bones? Is the article for education or sympathy?

People tell Nunez her daughter could get more money in public assistance if she had a child.

"A lot of people have told me, 'Why don't your daughter have a kid?'"

They both reject that as a plan.


Well, at least they don't plan on reproducing. Besides, where would she possibly find a willing participant? I'm sorry--that is pathetic--mom is only 40 years old and looks like that??? These people are sickening--and they expect our sympathy. And people call the Katrina losers bad.

The rising cost of food means their money gets them about a third fewer bags of groceries $100 used to buy about 12 bags of groceries, but now it's more like seven or eight. So they cut back on expensive items like meat, and they don't buy extras like ice cream anymore. Instead, they eat a lot of starches like potatoes and noodles.
I suspect they ate a lot of potatoes and noodles AND ice cream and meat. 7 or 8 bags of groceries for $100??? and they used to get 12?? If they are smart enough to pull that off, surely ONE of them could find a job! Heck....they could start a business shopping for others! Yeow!

WHAT is wrong with NPR???? I think this story with those photos was either a joke or a mistake. Who could have sympathy?.....and I'm the biggest bleeding heart on the planet!
