David Letterman on hunger

I note in the post below that the $755 million the World Food Program urgently needs to keep people from dying is less than the obscene amount the U.S. spends in two days of prosecuting its war against the Iraqi people. David Letterman (!) last night compared the amount to another obscene figure - the amount being spent on the U.S. Presidential election:
"It’s just god awful. If you think about it, if you compare those amounts of money—and I heard this statistic the other day—to maintain, to maintain status quo of world starvation—that means not improve it...but just for people to hang on, we need $700 million. And these two, have generated more than that already and still people are going hungry."
