The Dalles Deserving pity
To the editor:
I’m responding to your editorial of Nov. 19, regarding the SNAP program. You do realize that you cannot buy toilet paper with SNAP funds, correct? So the pop-can buyer in your story could (theoretically, though probably not) be reduced to having to exchange cans for that?
Someone who’s life has been reduced to that wretched state is deserving of our pity, not actively figuring out ways to make it worse.
