The group feels the double-standard that forces woman to cover their bodies, and not men, is a problem. They hope by bringing attention to the issue, woman will one day be allowed to go topless in public.

Reality.

This makes me mad. And sad.

Crooks works. The work he does – for AmeriCorp Vista – isn’t easy; it helps the community and Montana; and is woefully underpaid, at that.

AmeriCorp Vista’s mission? VISTAs commit to work for a year at a nonprofit organization or local government agency with a focus on fighting illiteracy, improving health services or strengthening community groups to bring individuals out of poverty. The program provides him with a small paycheck every other week, but it’s not enough to pay for all necessities so he, and most VISTAs, qualifies for SNAP

More Montana citizens receive federal assistance to pay for their groceries than ever before.

The number of recipients has climbed steadily every month for the past two years, with 12 percent of the state population receiving benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP.

In May of this year, 116,368 Montanans received money for food. During May 2008, there were 80,911, according to Linda Snedigar, administrator for the Human and Community Services Division of the Montana Department of Health and Human Services.

I hope our Senator John Tester reads this – two months ago he proposed cutting $25 a week from the food stamp program.
