      What's sad is that the poor are looked at as a burden and not worth the attention or resources from the wealthy in the country. Either this was a deliberate act or someone really dropped the ball in dousing the field with so much insecticide to cause an effect to humans. Life is not held to the standard we take for granted here.

      This is why I never trusted school lunches. But sorry to hear this, I hope whoever is behind this is found out.
