A Statistic

While noodling a post looking back on 2012 as a year of ignorance and denial, I Googled "single mother poverty" and found this site wherein was this statistic.
Income: Half of single mother families have an annual income less than $25,000. Median income for single mother families ($24,487) is only one third the median for married couple families ($77,749).
Under the hypothesis that we theocratic prudes don't have enemies, just future converts who need to be educated, that might be a decent stat to throw around the next time someone brings up the issue of income inequality. It's simple and to the point.
