A quotation attributed to U.S. Rep. Jim Hagedorn in Wednesday edition stated: “Nobody (in America) goes to sleep at night wondering if they’ll be able to feed their families.” Hagedorn made the comment with regard to availability of food in grocery stores, and America having a food supply that is abundant and nutritious in stark comparison to other countries.
