It feels so good to make a difference

Christians, I have wonderful news to pass along! Those of you looking to see Compassionate Conservatism in action are in for a real treat. It seems that America, under the brilliant leadership of Our President, has turned a favorite proverb about self-reliance into reality: Give a man a fish and he eats for a day; teach him to fish and he eats for a lifetime; give him worms and he doesn't even have to stop by the bait shop:
As many as 23 percent of inner city African Americans are infected with roundworm, according to a new article published in the journal PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases.

Large numbers of the poorest Americans living in the United States are suffering from some of the same parasitic infections that affect the poor in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, according to the the editor-in-chief of the peer-reviewed journal.

Professor Peter Hotez of George Washington University and the Sabin Vaccine Institute said roundworms, threadworms and tapeworms are more common than believed and often under-reported because the tropical parasites infect poor children living in inner cities and rural America.
On behalf of those who advocated this tough-love approach to social services, all I can say is "You're welcome." Praise Him!
