the family profiled in this WSJ article are unmarried, have four kids and "one in the oven", and are lining up at Wal-Mart at midnight when the next food stamp payment hits the account. They have made a science out of spending your money. They can't even wait to get a full night's sleep. The sad part is, it must be because they are hungry, because it's not like Wal Mart is going to run out of food or anything. Apparently, Wal-Mart gets pretty busy on the nights when food stamp payments happen.

Are we reading the same article? I didn't see that family mentioned anywhere in the article.
