First Lady Michelle Obama showed up Thursday as a surprise and welcome volunteer at Miriam's Kitchen,
a soup kitchen for homeless poor people not far from the White House.
She brought with her some food donated by White House staff. The first lady served up mushroom risotto and broccoli to a long line of homeless men and women during part of her lunch hour and in these photos
poses for a picture by one homeless diner obviously excited to be in the first lady's presence.
It doesn't detract from the first lady's generous gesture or the real needs she seeks to highlight to ask two bothersome journalistic questions about these news photos:
1. If this unidentified meal recipient is too poor to buy his own food, how does he afford a cell phone?
2. And if he is homeless, where do they send the cell phone bills?
NOW JUST SMILE AND SAY CHEESE
