Conservatives in the House had a big win yesterday when they voted to cut nearly $4 billion a year in food stamps, affecting the nation’s main feeding program used by more than 1 in 7 Americans. The bill’s savings would be achieved by allowing states to put broad new work requirements in place for many food stamp recipients and to test applicants for drugs. [CBS]

A 21-year-old man who attends a special needs transitional program for adults was beaten just moments after he left a GameStop store in Florida to pick up his new copy of Grand Theft Auto V.

Good news? Police arrested the couple. Bad news? They sold Dawkins game and he STILL doesn’t have a new copy. [Gawker]
