RIP George McGovern

No replies

I do believe he was a good man:

Excerpt from above article:

"George McGovern made it his life's work to end the plague of hunger across the globe and here at home. He was a pioneer of our successful food stamp program and, working across the aisle with former Senator Bob Dole, helped expand funding for free and reduced cost school lunches. As Director of the Food for Peace program under President Kennedy, Senator McGovern strengthened our leadership around the world by helping feed millions with surplus American produce.

"While many of his ideas may have been ahead of his time, they have since helped shape our policies as a nation. "
