Tim: That “30 million Americans going hungry” has been a feature of Left

propaganda in the US for as long as I can remember. It’s a physical

constant, like the speed of light. Come hell or high water, recession or

boom, welfare enacted or welfare repealed, 30 million Americans are always

hungry. Though, oddly, you hear much less about them in Democratic


Perhaps one of the NR office people with access to the big news databases

could tell us when the first report of 30 million Americans being hungry

showed up. I’m willing to bet it was the Nixon administration, at latest…
