Melanie-
I certainly agree that the recent problems with hunger are appalling. But I am unsure how taking funding from UNFPA would help and why you would choose that. Seems that merely swaps one problem for another.

I heard about the "dirt cookies" in Haiti at the Newsboys concert on Saturday. They had a Project called GlobalTribe and were talking about Haiti. Mark of Audio A has an orphanage in Haiti called Hands & Feet Project. I found myself wondering if they were working in concert with one another and hoping that they could be. I have just been treading water here, so to speak and I'm sorry I haven't been more in tune. At least I have plenty to eat. I feel almost badly that I've nearly tuned out the election. I would have hated my attitude about it a few years back. Politicians never could save us, though. I think we should be involved, but I can't be terribly excited about any of the choices. I'm the sort that doesn't like to complain until I have a solution. I'm not sure there is one. Although, I wouldn't mind seeing the UNFPA defunded and the money going to the food program. :)

Anyway, thanks for the reminder.

Mark,
It really is sad. Our church works with a lot of people in Haiti....it's unbelievable what they go through. They're eating DIRT cookies! Not only are they actual dirt cookies, but they BUY them! The man who runs a school we support says it feels like he drank clorox..thats how hungry they are. Satan's having a hayday and America is worried about whether Hannah Montana is "legit" or if Brittney Spears is sober enough to get her kids back......the Lord truly, for the few there who know Him, is their only hope.

Another sign of the times...it's the End days so many prophecies coming to pass so fast Jesus is coming!!!

I certainly wouldn't choose to use food as fuel. It is horribly inefficient and takes more energy to make than it produces. It is also NOT environmentally friendly. We have people like Al Gore putting incredible pressure on us to adopt the use of these types of alternative fuels. If we don't, it makes us look like we don't care. Nothing could be farther from the truth! Now we have been bullied into using something we think will help the environment and people are going to feel the pinch at the grocery store or worse. People will not be able to get food because of the rising costs.

Thank you Mark. The way food works in our world right now is so screwy. We in America are using food for fuel while others are starving.

There are so many aspects and dynamics to different issues going on in the world of food right now, but it's something I'm pretty passionate about.

    What's in my CD player

    • R.E.M. -

      R.E.M.: Accelerate CD/DVD
      Athens' own return with a trashy cool offering - their most consistent album in years. I think they're mad at their dad or something (****)

    • The Rolling Stones -

      The Rolling Stones: Shine a Light: Original Soundtrack
      This is what a live album SHOULD sound like. Unedited, unfixed - just a good recording of what happened that night... (****)

    • Mudcrutch -

      Mudcrutch: Mudcrutch
      Tom Petty and Mike Campbell reunite with their old band and forge an instant classic. (****)

    • Counting Crows -

      Counting Crows: Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings
      It was pretty gutsy to lay it out the way they did: all the rockers on the "Saturday Night" section and all the ballads on the "Sunday Morning" side. But it works, and in a major way. Some of the best guitar work I've heard in recent memory. (*****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: The Lost Crowes
      WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME ABOUT THIS RECORD?! You've heard most of these songs on other records, but it's just so raw and band-y here. Fall in love with the best band in the world all over again... (*****)

    • Pillar -

      Pillar: For The Love Of The Game
      So far this is the album to beat for the rock album of 2008 in the Christian market... The title track has kind of been my "theme song" the last couple of months. (*****)

    • Maylene and the Sons of Disaster -

      Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: II
      The perfect blend of Southern rock and metal - this is my favorite album right now. (*****)

    • Kevn Kinney -

      Kevn Kinney: Broken Hearts & Auto Parts
      I picked this up in Athens the other day. It starts out a little slow, but turns into vintage Kevn Kinney/Drivin n Cryin. This is as good as anything he/they have ever put out! (****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: Warpaint
      If you look up "killer" in the dictionary, you will find a picture of these guys.

    • Baroness -

      Baroness: Red Album
      So far the most original and inspiring music I've heard this year... (*****)

    • Down -

      Down: Down - Over The Under
      This is easily the most rockin' records I've ever owned. It's like redneck Soundgarden. Heaven for a dude like me... (*****)

    • Demon Hunter -

      Demon Hunter: Storm the Gates of Hell
      Don't let the "metalcore" label fool you. This album features some of the biggest and hookiest choruses you'll ever hear. "Lead Us Home", "Carry Me Down", and "Thorns" are great examples. Plus I think they'll give you your money back if the title track doesn't make your ears bleed :) (*****)
