Strong opinions, weakly held

Today in poverty

Just a few items that have caught my eye in the past few days:

  • Twelve year old boy dies after a tooth abscess spreads to his brain. Not only is the child dead, but his total medical bill wound up at $250,000. Extracting the tooth would have cost $80.
  • One study estimates that 750,000 Americans are living on the streets.
  • Severe poverty in America is at a 32 year high. 16 million Americans are living in deep or severe poverty.
