Photos That Make the Rude Pundit Wonder What Jamie Dimon Ate After His Congressional Hearing:
That cowboy-hat-topped, overalls sporting, bearded white man who is rolling a cart with a sack of potatoes on it is named, ironically enough, considering our current presidential campaign situation, Joseph Smith. And he can't afford food.
Over the course of a couple of hours yesterday, the mobile food truck of the Food Bank of the Southern Tier of New York delivered groceries to 100 families in the town of Deposit. It used to be a big logging area, and then, in the early 20th century, a couple of publishing houses were employing people there. Now, nearly 20% of the people live below the poverty line.
The Mobile Food Pantry will be making deliveries all over the region, even in the college town of Binghamton. It will never, ever have even a tenth of a percent of the money JP Morgan lost to help the thousands of people the food bank serves.
