Thursday on UpFront: In this economy, more than 46 million americans are using food stamps — but the senate’s poised to approve a $2 billion dollar cut to that program. Journalist Christopher Cook (http://www.christopherdcook.com/) joins us in studio to dissect the massive farm bill being debated this week. Also, Sonali Kolhatkar discusses Burma’s long road to democracy with human rights activists Edith Mirante. And Richard Wolinsky interviews acclaimed playwright Eve Ensler — to discuss the new show she’s performing in Berkeley. That’s on Up Front at 7:AM, right after Democracy Now!
