How come with all the "green" talk no one has tackled the diaper issue? We should not be giving away disposable diapers - they clog the landfills, are expensive and wasteful. Give em cloth diapers and let em learn how to wash them. Cheaper and better for the environment.

michelle, I have to agree with you. It gets so tiring to yank oneself out of bed every day to make it to work and deal with pressure, being overworked, etc. and then watch others come and help themselves to the freebies. Something is really wrong here.

I will be taking advantage of this free service too...even though I have a great job and make alot of money. Why should all the lazy immigrants get free diapers?
And how do you know that those availing themselves of this service are "lazy immigrants" and not people who suddenly find themselves in desperate circumstances because of financially devastating life events for which they were unprepared?

And in my relatively short lifetime, I've encountered more immigrants who are far from lazy freeloaders and show up Americans (what makes one person "more American" than others) in their idealism and pursuit of the American dream.
