Who is poor?

Re "Remeasuring poverty," Opinion, Sept. 15

Rebecca M. Blank's article on refiguring the poverty rate in the U.S. is an excellent analysis of one reason why poverty is such a problem here: We can't rightly say who is poor.

The first time I heard about this issue was in an episode of "The West Wing." Hopefully, a real administration can manage to do what a fictional one had no problem implementing.
