President Barack Obama's administration should be ashamed for allowing the latest cuts to the Meals on Wheels program. This is the coup de grace for many dependent on the generosity of donations and, yes, the government (with our tax bucks).

Meals on Wheels is an integral organization that's basically a lifeline, providing a nutritious meal once a day for many elderly and disabled who can't cook anymore. Guess we seniors are just that expendable.

The pruning of Meals on Wheels will limit our visits from volunteers who are compassionate, have a few kind words for us while handing out that wonderful meal and, in some areas, even have a little something for our companion pets.

The cutting of this program will force some live-at-home recipients to be institutionalized -- the last train to Gun Hill.
