LETTER: Cuts to food stamps are wrong

Miguel Reyes-Cuerva’s Thursday letter tells us that food stamps are encouraging folks who can work not to. Mr. Reyes-Cuerva either apparently knows no one on food stamps, or he does not realize how little support such stamps provide.

No one would actually not work just to receive a few bucks a month in food stamps. And the idea that we let folks starve to encourage them to be independent is ludicrous. And that is what he is suggesting.

Don't miss the big stories. Like us on Facebook.

LETTER: U-Haul won’t hire nicotine users

If half of the unemployed people smoke, where do they get the nearly $300 per month needed to supply a one-pack-a-day habit?
