    I second jbstr's kudos to KDH and its staff.

    I believe it took a lot of courage to publish something on this topic in this conservative town of self proclaimed "bootstrappers" who look down on others while cashing their government checks. Too bad they don't see themselves as lucky for the way things turned out for them.

    I just wish all the multi-million dollar church you see on so many corners in this town/state could and would do more (since they pay no property taxes). It might beat the patch quilt system of public/private "partnerships" that allow most of the tired, poor and hungry who yearn to live free in this great land of opportunity called Texas to slip through the cracks.

    Everyone who participated in this report, good job. It is a sobering reminder of reality. In a moment, illness, accident, financial, can turn a family upside down and apart. It could happen to anyone. Thank you KDH for this report.
