Expand the Use of Food Stamps?

Some anti-hunger advocates would like to make it easier for them to use food stamps, by relaxing rules forbidding their use to buy fast food.

What would be wrong with giving people the right to use their food stamps at fast-food places? What do we know about the nutritional habits of the program’s recipients?

The comments (early) make me doubt the capacity for rational thought in the NYT readers.
