Re: “Hungry kids? TNT claim is ridiculous” (letter, 9-23).

What ivory tower is this letter writer living in? Children can go hungry during a teacher strike.

Sometime cereal and peanut butter is hard to have after rent, electricity, water/sewer, etc. is paid. Before criticizing the newspaper, this letter writer needs to do some volunteer work for low-income children. One’s life experience isn’t always the same for others.

My ancestors have a saying: “Do not criticize another until you walk in his moccasins.” That’s good advice to the wise.
