20/20-Mountain Dew

Last night's show was a heartbreaker.. The poverty, ignorance and hopelessness of this area in the Appalachians is appalling.

Why is this allowed to continue-the politicians serving these people should be ashamed. What the heck are they doing with their time & votes? To see toothless children-homeless people-drunks-the land being raped-providing the only jobs in the area is mind boggling. One young man living in his truck - because his home is unbearable.

Much of the area has no potable water-thus the popularity of teeth rotting Mounain Dew.

We can build bridges to nowhere; but to ignore their plight is sinful. I'm ashamed.
What say you?
