26. One thing you wrote confused me.
You talked about a lady who qualified for $10 a month in food stamps. I thought that food stamps payed a lot more than that. I just read today that a family of four can qualify for $660 a month. And I realize that $660 is not very much when you try to feed a family of four at today's hign food prices? But $10 a month? Are you sure that is accurate? Wouldn't a single person qualify for more than that? If a family of four can get $660 shouldn't a single person get 660/4 which equals $165? And again, I know that's not very much but it's certainly better than $10.

Here is the article that mentions $660 monthly for a family of four.
