The End of Hunger in America

The Agriculture Department has eliminated hunger in America.

Pretty easy, actually. They just chose to no longer use the word. Americans are no longer "hungry." They just go to bed with "very low food security."

The USDA issues an annual report that measures hunger -- er, very low food security -- in America. It's latest report finds that 12% of Americans couldn't afford to put food on the table at some point in the last year. That's 35 million people. (WaPo)
