About the header image: April 3, 2013

On Easter, media outlets were running their annual obligatory stories about people observing the religious holiday in places like the Philippines with re-enactments of the crucifixion that involve actually crucifying volunteers. A friend posted one of these stories to Facebook, and someone posted a comment along the lines of "Too bad they don't bother to do something like, say, feed the poor."

The St. Francis of Assisi Kitchen in Scranton is one place that does just that, and has been doing it for nearly thirty-five years. Journalist and blogger Andy Palumbo took this picture as part of his annual Easter post. This post, as well as Andy's thoughts about Scranton, social services, and another fellow by the name of Francis, can be found here.
