Heartbreaking: Desperate people dumpster-diving for food in NYC

I had no idea the reality on the ground was this bad. This is Drudge’s lead story (OBAMA LEFT THEM BEHIND: HUNGRY DUMPSTER DIVING IN NYC) and I can see why. These people still without power are so hungry they’ve pried open a huge dumpster and are trying to find something to eat. It is heartbreaking.


It’s been several days since Sandy left her destruction. Why is it that we can’t get these people food? I know there are problems everywhere but this is what happens in third world countries. You’d think we could find a way to feed these people.

Perhaps it is underway thanks to NBC New York for running this story.
