You know the challenge, and maybe you’ve taken it yourself: Pledge to live on the same amount of food provided to someone on food stamps (now called SNAP). The amount varies from state to state, but it’s hard and it’s challenging and why do you think people were so hateful that Paltrow, who seems to be a target for all kinds of angst, did this? (Time magazine called her participation “poverty tourism.”)
But at least Slate told everyone to cool their jets.
And thanks, Kimberley, for the link.
