Are they tilling the land?

Dear Editor,

Re: Mother desperate for better home 

I still can’t figure out why they would have to use the bushes when they could always have a pit latrine, or even a peace Corp type of latrine.

It sounds rather suspicious....couple plus six kids being trained to do their business like this in the bushes at night has got nothing to do with being poor.

It seems to be pointing only at one indication alone - slackness, care less, and overwhelming laziness.

The fertile land and access to the sea is something that the real impoverished of the world lack.

God gave these gifts to some, but are they tilling the land and using the available resources on the land appropriately?
