I didn't read the whole article, but he commented that obesity is a nation wide problem. If this is so, then to get the greatest bang for the buck in solving the problem, then publicity should be cast upon the state with the MOST fatsos and it ain't the great state of Mississippi. The last time I checked, it was the golden state, you know, the one with all the slim, trim, blonde, good looking healthy people. Solve that state's problem and you will solve most of the obesity problem.

I don't know about any of you, but it's not going to change my plans or menus in the least. The last information I read said something to the effect that you actually live longer if you fall into the "overweight" category. Anybody want to send some fried chicken and biscuits to California as a Care package for the poor starving Yankee busybodies?
