Jackson was quoted in one paper as saying that he "urged Schiavo’s 
supporters to bring the 'same passion' to the fight against world hunger", 
but to say that's rather unlikely is to put it mildly. Jackson himself, 
appearing this morning on CNN, didn't mention ONE WORD about "world hunger", 
nor to my knowledge is it an issue he has ever been associated with in a 
significant way.

17,000 children under 5 die daily from hunger-related diseases; acute 
malnutrition (not malnutrition; "acute" malnutrition) has DOUBLED in Iraq 
since the U.S. invasion. Neither fact was worth of Jackson's pious 
mouthings.
