Cory Booker, the high-profile mayor of Newark, New Jersey, intends to live on a food-stamp budget for one week to demonstrate how difficult it is to do. I wish him well, I am looking forward to his reaction and report on the experience. I wish that every critic of food stamps and hunger in America would take a food-stamp challenge before uttering any criticism. As I watch the well-fed pundits and politicians on TV, I know that none of them are hungry.
