Actually, when it comes to nutrition you only need to shop the perimeter of the grocery store to get healthy food and shopping for fruit, vegetables, meat and dairy which cost less than processed food with far few calories. Fill a cart with fruit & veggies and see how far your money goes compared to chips and cookies.. It's all about choice.

Years ago I had the pleasure of volunteering in an elementary school classroom as a reading mentor. My observation was that the same kids who received free lunch, didn't do their homework, and always wanted to raid the "animal crackers" emergency snack jar were the ones who had all of the latest and best video games shoes and clothes and got picked up in the newest SUVs. Just my observation of course.

Things to consider when asking for justice:
Was Mr. Brown just in his actions at the liquor store? Was Mr. Brown just in his actions when he assaulted Officer Wilson? Was Mr. Brown just in his actions to return toward the officer?
Was Officer Wilson just in shooting Mr. Brown to stop him from causing more bodily harm.
Were the protesters just in looting the local shops? Is the community better off after the destruction of their shops.
How has the story change since it first happened.
Is Mr Brown an young, soon to be college bound man walking down the street minding his own business or was he a thug who just robbed a convenience store with drugs in his system and used his stature to taunt the officer? Was Officer Wilson a racist cop who stopped Mr. Brown and his friend only because they are black or was did he return to question a suspect in a robbery and shoot in fear of great bodily harm? Were the first 5 shots fired to stop Mr. Brown from getting away or were they an execution. Was there a rush to judgement to assume that because the officer was white Mr. Brown was an innocent victim?

Integrity, high standards, and leading by example no longer valued. Governor Perry is being called an embarrassment but the head of the Public Integrity Unit is the victim for being asked to step down.
Being convicted of DUI is called moral turpitude. It's a crime against government authority. A crime that goes against public morals. If you are the head of the agency representing Public Integrity you should be held to high standards otherwise a hypocrite. But then, what difference would that be from the holding higher standards to the IRS, HHS, DOJ, EPA or even POTUS?

nupanther: Yes, I stand corrected. 23 per 1000 is only 2.3%, but that number compared to the rest of the country is still alarming. Why here, what is different? Compliments to you for a well written comment.

23.6 per 1,000 black births is SHOCKING! That's 1 in 4 babies are dying.before their 1st birthday! If the government is providing the necessary programs what is going on to account for the death of these babies? Mahoning county is not a 3rd world country with disease and lack of food. What would account for these high statistics other than neglect?

Heartbreaking to know that he brought happiness to everyone but he himself could be so depressed. What a tragedy.
One thing to learn from this loss it that 1 in 4 Americans suffer from depression at one time or other. It 's sometimes a chemical imbalance that can be helped with medication. We just need to reach out for help. No matter how dark things seem today, the sun will come out tomorrow.

OK. I have a virus for which there is no cure. I'm going to die and I'm being told that it would be unethical to be given a drug that is untested? What's wrong with this picture?
