Re: cell phones and low wage workers

I have a friend that is a nutritionist and worked for the state counseling underprivileged pregnant women.

She would get so disgusted because she'd work with a woman through one pregnancy, the state would take the kid and the woman would be back again having another kid at the state's expense.  Laura thought the state ought to have the right to sterilize some of these women at some point.

One time she had a client that was bemoaning having a nice Thanksgiving dinner for her family.  So Laura and her husband out of their own pocket got a nice meal together for them.  She said never again would she do anything like that because she had to remove the alcohol and drugs from the table before she could put the nice food she had brought them down.  All she could think of was maybe a little less booze and drugs and they could have provided their own holiday meal.
