Feeding (Making?) Dependents

Feeding (Making?) Dependents

This year, the Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to distribute free Meals and Food Stamps to 46 million people–the  greatest amount ever.

Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us “Please Do Not Feed  the  Animals.”  Their stated reason for the policy is that, “The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.”

Thus ends today’s lesson in irony.
