The Poor in the World

Today, the United Nations opens an Assembly session devoted to an examination and possible assistance to the world's poor.

Could this meeting be any better timed? We're already withholding funding for the UN over abortion programs, plus Katrina focused American attention on our own impoverished classes (whom, it's only fair to point out, have it far better than nearly 4 billion other people on the planet).
