Ah, baker, me thinks I prefer the Dr. Peppers to the Jim Beams any day. Or even the Bacardis.

Re: “Bill for healthy food stamp purchases approved in committee

baker, glad you wrote "perhaps' because that keeps me from setting you straight. But I will tell you I contacted my state representative before the session started to tell him in person my opposition to any such bill if introduced. Unlike you, perhaps, I don't view the poor as the enemy in our society.
