Hi Jason: I know it is all in how we read things, words are words, in person there is body language, a persona.

The thing with statistics, is that they are numbers and given the calulation used to derive the set of numbers, I would not necessarily say the stats do not lie. Look at the one blog on the poverty blog ( no excuse) in the spec, where the writer gives a variety of poverty indicators/percentages. Stats do not necessary tell the truth, they are not the actual. One also would have to compare the budget against the actual, to see the true variance. There is no human experience in numbers.

Poor neighbours are overlooked because these neighbourhoods need to be organized. More public forums need to be held, knocking on doors, getting people aware and involved in the issues. There needs to be a network of all groups, so when the word goes out about a matter or issue, the people will rally. So many things are interconnected.
