Jon Stewart! Take on 'Gators' of Gainesville


We've tried everything to urge Gainesville, FL city leaders to remove the irrational, short-sighted, mean-spirited meal limit at St. Francis House. They can only serve 130 a day, even though hundreds more are hungry,  soup kitchen supplies are abundant and volunteers are willing and able.'s petitioners have sent over 4,000 pleas to the mayor and city council. Nada.

Local activists have haraunged and marched. Still nothing.

Influential bloggers point out the absurdity...and a crack in the "gator cage" appears. The Daily Show forum picked up on the HuffPost and sparked the possibility that the esteemed Jon Stewart might be interested in covering this issue.

We say: Call in the Big Dog, Jon Stewart, to take a stand for the millions of hungry people in America that can get stomped on, starting with Gainesville.
