Poverty grows

I'm behind on posting all sorts of things, but I did want to call your attention to the news that:
 Another 2.6 million people slipped into poverty in the United States last year, the Census Bureau reported Tuesday, and the number of Americans living below the official poverty line, 46.2 million people, was the highest number in the 52 years the bureau has been publishing figures on it.

Certainly not good news on any front: devastating to children living in poverty.
