I was drinking my morning coffee and viewing a photo essay on the CNN website about South Sudan.

Their extreme poverty and lack of infrastructure is affecting them in the wake of their war of independence from Sudan.  The photos show victims of famine and disease, with a 13 year old being buried, and malnourished children being examined by medical personnel.  But I kept getting pop up ads.  I don’t usually read them, but I couldn’t help but notice one was for women’s shoes that could probably feed a family for a month or more.  Then the next one was an ad for Subway sandwiches that you had to close before continuing on to the picture.  And the picture was of malnourished children.  That’s just so sick and wrong.
