In my food blogs I spoke about what our society has come to when we accept eating junk food, because it is less expensive, but really when you are feeding more than a few mouths it gets really expensive!...and then they are hungry an hour later...well how about this piece I found...can you imagine how the child will feel when they get older?

GREENFIELD, Calif. - Police have arrested a Greenfield man for allegedly arranging to sell his 14-year-old daughter into marriage in exchange for $16,000, 100 cases of beer and several cases of meat.
Police said they only learned of the deal after the 36-year-old man went to them to get his daughter back because payment wasn't made as promised. The man was arrested Sunday on suspicion of human trafficking.
Officers also arrested an 18-year-old man on suspicion of statutory rape. Investigators believe the girl went willingly with the man, but she's under California's legal age of consent and can't legally marry.
