Over at Huff Po, I read about the Fox News host who wants to live off food stamps "as a dieting technique". Read the whole article, watch if you have the stomach for it.
I was spitting mad: let me share a story below the orange squiggle.
Her name is Flower. Most of her family was destroyed in the Vietnam war. She and a few of her family members made it to the U.S. and settled in California. She worked day and night to send money to Vietnam to her old mother and children who still live there. My sister met her at the Vietnamese nail salon where she did people's nails and gave them massages. My sister and Flower became friends, but then the economic downturn came and Flower was let go from work.
My sister asked her to start coming to her home once a week for pedicures/manicures for her family. She also talked to several friends, and they also started inviting Flower to come to their homes. That is how I met Flower: visiting my sister, getting a pedicure from this beautiful, poised, gentle, dignified lady.
