I was pleased recently to see a picture from one of my old film cameras featured in a presentation on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Representative Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico was speaking out against the disasterous cuts to the federal food stamp program which the Republicans have proposed.  I worked in the program in San Francisco during the time of the Nixon/Ford administrations and recall many of the same bad arguments being made then about how the poor were the cause of the country's economic woes.

Paul Krugman's Sunday column presents a nice dissection of the Republican arguments against the food stamp (SNAP) program.
