Kudos, Andy O’Brien, for your ironic headline “Mayhew Touts ‘Brighter Future’ for Poor Families by Eliminating Their Food and Housing Assistance,” with its substantive story. They say “a picture is worth a thousand words” and your headline is just such a picture. Only a politician, like Mayhew, could think in such a distorted and perverse way!
