>>implying cheaper means you need to go rural
Though in all honesty, I really don't care about her getting food stamps. If you need 'em, you need 'em. I think it's a bit silly that she's limiting herself to NYC (implied?), but it's her life. If she doesn't mind living on the verge of poverty, have at it. What irks me are those who bitch and moan about their situation and don't look outside the box. This was a well written and fairly modest piece though, kudos.
