FRAC Releases New Data on Food Hardship in 2008 and 2009, with First-Ever Data for MSAs and All Congressional Districts

Download the report:

Food Hardship: A Closer Look at Hunger - Data for the Nation, States, 100 MSAs, and Every
Congressional District

Washington, D.C. - January 26, 2010 - New data released by the Food Research
and Action Center (FRAC) reveal - for the very first time - the extent to
which Americans are struggling to afford enough food in every Congressional
District and 100 of the country's largest metropolitan areas. This
unprecedented set of data also chronicles food hardship through December
2009, providing a unique up-to-date examination of how millions of American
households in every part of the country are struggling with hunger in the
recession. Official government data on food insecurity have a nearly
one-year time lag and do not go below the state level.

I think FRAC is such an appropriate acronym in this case...

"Republic Day, celebrated on January 26th every year, is one of India’s most important national events. It was on January 26th, 1950 that the constitution of India came into force and India became a truly Sovereign, Democratic and Republic state."

This movie is *still* playing in Indy (an unheard of run for a Bollywood flick!). I think I must go see it again. Yes, I must.

If you have a chance to see it, wherever you are, please do.

I do not like...

Books: Anything on the bestselling fiction list. Or just about anything considered a "classic" which is litspeak for "will want to make you slit your wrists halfway through."

Movies: Just about anything that gets an Oscar best picture nomination. Emotional dramas. Gross-out slasher films. Shaky-cam faux documentaries. Movies about pretty blue people who need a great white saviour for some inexplicable reason (coff coff).

Do I feel left out of media conversations? Very often. I don't read enough sci fi to be a sci fi FAN so I can't talk books. I do watch blockbuster movies, so that's not as painful.

Mostly, however, I have learned that my lack of television watching is what makes me feel more left out than anything else. I like a lot of programs (Psych, Leverage, Middleman, White Collar). But there are NONE that I watch religiously enough to fall into the FAN category. And so, I am relegated to nodding and smiling politely when friends go on and on and on about Supernatural, Dollhouse, et al.

I don't know anyone who loves Bollywood the way I do. Welcome to my atypical tastes.

Sagittarius Horoscope for week of January 7, 2010

In a million years, I would never authorize you to unleash your naked greed and give it unconditional license to careen through the world gobbling and acquiring and appropriating. However, due to an odd blip in the astrological configurations, I am at liberty to give you permission to unleash your discerning, elegant greed and grant it a temporary dispensation to sample more than usual of anything that captivates your ravenous imagination.

Imagine going to a fast food or chain restaurant in KY and easily being able to see how many calories there are in the items you are considering ordering. This could be a reality if menu labeling legislation being proposed by Senator Denise Harper-Angel and Representative Kelly Flood passes.

Menu Labeling Rally

Wednesday, January 13 11 am

KY State Capital Room 327

Please come and show your support for this important step in fighting obesity in KY. We need a large crowd at the rally to show legislators and the media that there is strong support for posting calories on menus.

For more info: www.fitky.org

(Plus I have a couple PDFs and a PPT on the topic if you're interested.)

My teddy bear, Brownie. He meant everything: love, family, safety, peace.

My grandmother gave him away when I was 17, while I was visiting my parents. She did that with almost all of my childhood toys (except the ones I hid). I never in a million years thought she'd give away the damn teddy bear that I'd had since I was two. I mean, she still had my mother's teddy bear at the time, which was at least 30 years old.

Guess I was different.

Never forgave her. Never will.
