It's the basics

The headline on this CBS News piece is "Food prices soar as incomes stand still," and, boy, ain't it the truth?

Writer Jen Singer, the mother of two teenage boys, wrestles with her grocery list every week to keep the household budget from getting away from her.

"I'd like the government to stop by my house, come food shopping with me and see where the real costs are," she said.
