    It snowed this evening in New Jersey. There are people in the United States who are cold, hungry, homeless. People beg outside the community college where I adjunct in Paterson. Every week at a minimum someone commits a mass shooting. Mental health clinics are closed down at alarming rates. Sick people can't afford medical care and medicines. The military is hardly under-resourced, but a whole lot of other important human necessities are.
