Not to make light of their economic situation, which you can read about in this NPR sob story about poor people in Ohio (no doubt meant to make the people of Ohio long for "hope" and "change"), but do they actually look like they have had a hard time obtaining food?
If you are going to write an article on the plight of the poor starving masses, try finding some to photograph who look more like "starving" than "masses."
I had to do some searching, but I finally found this photo that I first saw in a college course on communication through art:
What do you think of this picture? Does it shock you? It shocked the hell out of me. I heard the photographer later committed suicide, after winning a pulitzer prize. Would this child have loved to have had the chance to grow up in Ohio? We can never know (although, according the photographer, the girl was rescued... but her identity and final fate remain a mystery).
Just think about this next time someone tries to sell you a sob story about the hungry people in Ohio...
