There was a news piece last night on food insecurity in the U.S., some statistic about the number of people in the U.S. without access to enough calories. And yet, every adult interviewed who was dependent on charitable food provisions was also significantly overweight. The picture was disconcerting. Poor fat people complaining about not having enough food. I get it though. In America, even the poorest among us, especially the poorest among us, have grown, and grown, and grown accustomed to this vast, endless, Mississippean flow of absurdly cheap calories. We've been lulled into thinking it's natural to have no effective limits other than the available hours in the day to the amount of food we can consume. Having that change, even slightly, with the recession must be a horrific shock to some people.
