American "poverty"

Caught most of "20/20's" pathetic "Waiting_on_the_World_to_Change": "The Hopes, Dreams and Hardships of Children in America's Most Dangerous City" tonight.

I was reminded of the real poverty I observed in the Peoples Republic of China this past summer: the elderly women begging for plastic bottles and spare change, the mud huts under bridges, the farmers living_in_caves (in Xi'an), etc.

I really think that 20/20 would do better highlighting actual poverty in this world like that displayed in the Somali_Documentary_Project.
