Two N.Y. Times articles worthy of note

Leslie Eaton's article, "In Mississippi, Poor Lag in Hurricane Aid," Nov. 14, N.Y. Times, reports that Mississippi "has spent $1.7 billion in federal money on programs that have mostly benefited relatively affluent residents and big businesses," and that "just $167 million, or about 10 percent of the federal money, has been spent on programs dedicated to helping the poor." 

Julia Preston's "Immigration Quandary: A Mother Torn from Her Baby," Nov. 17, N.Y. Times reports on a Honduran mother who was detained, leaving her child who was still breast feeding and who is a U.S. citizen, in the care of social workers.
