136. I appreciate your contribution.
Perhaps I phrased my initial reply badly.

I did not intend to mischaracterise ALL poor people, but I suppose I may have come off sounding like that. Apologies for any unintended offense.

The sweet cereal/mac 'n' cheese stuff was simply meant as an example...but perhaps it is a poor one.

All I was attempting to point out is that poverty can be a self-perpetuating vicious cycle when education and social programs are underfunded at the state and local levesl of government.
