For those who mistakenly think that the world and/or this blog revolves around their little egos, a reminder that nobody is the sum of their blog entries and that not every entry is a looking glass -- the overwhelming majority are not. That said, yet more evidence of out-of-whack priorities in this world in which most Americans whittle away their lives engaged in various exercises of accumulation and hoarding:

U.N.: Hunger Kills 18,000 Kids Each Day

"''Today 850 million people are hungry and malnourished. Over half of them are children. 18,000 children die every single day because of hunger and malnutrition,' Morris said. 'This is a shameful fact -- a terrible indictment of the world in 2007, and it's an issue that needs to be solved.'"

"Morris said the largest number of malnourished children are in India -- more than 100 million -- followed by nearly 40 million in China."

"Elsewhere, there are probably 100 million hungry children in the rest of Asia, another 100 million in Africa where countries have fewer resources to help, and 30 million in Latin America, he said."
