Oregon Governor On Food Stamps

Gov. Ted Kulongoski of Oregon is living on a budget of a week's worth of food stamps for the state's Hunger Awareness Week. What do you think?


Jarred Georgeson, Tavern Owner: "Hopefully someone tipped him off to that deli in Portland that will totally let you use them to buy forties and scratch-offs.

Darren Butler, Crop Duster: "Sounds wonderful! According to my pioneering guide, there is more than enough food in Oregon for the worthy adventurer, from plentiful beavers to succulent ducks!

Kristen Stewart, Focus Puller: "I'd hate to be an Oregonian when it's Transvestite Awareness Week."
