Maple Street

In the classic Twilight Zone episode, "The Monsters are Due on Maple Street," (1960) the neighbors on "Maple Street U.S.A.," in an idyllic American town, suddenly encounter unexplainable events and conclude they are the result of an alien invasion. (In a later remake, "The Monsters are on Maple Street," (2003) they suspect there has been a terrorist attack.) In the end, the neighbors turn on each other and innocent blood is shed.

On Saturday, Congressman Roger Marshall listened as college students shared stories about lives saved by the federal government's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) when he stopped at Haven, the last on his Farm Bill listening tour. They asked him if, after hearing these stories, he would have compassion for those in need and support funding for the program in the 2018 Farm Bill. Marshall agreed there is no question the need is there, but rather than a hand-out, he'd like to pave the way for jobs so fewer people need SNAP. Moments later, another attendee at his listening ...
