I'd be really interested to hear opinions about this. I found some of the statistics in it close to unbelievable, but I trust the writer.

It's about poverty in Ohio.

I can't verify the numbers, but it doesn't seem hard to believe at all to me.

I'm sure the health-care situation is much worse.

And unemployment statistics don't even reflect the people who have to take two or three no-benefit jobs just to make ends meet. And still can't afford to go to the doctor.

I knew about the health situation because we get to hear about that, but I didn't know about the severity of the poverty experienced in some areas.
