there there ... that will solve the obesity problem in the US.

Why do you think Europeans are so handsome looking? because the food is freagin' expensive!

Now listen to this:
"Some Oregon people are so smitten with Senator Obama that at least one coffee shop has started selling "Obama blend" coffee - mixing beans from Kenya, where his father was born, and Indonesia, where he spent some of his childhood."

sigh ... and these are the "intellectual" state?!

Not to be nit-picky, but anorexia is a mental disorder with serious physical consequences. It's not something to joke about lightly.

The media can whine for hours about the made-up "obesity" epidemic, while girls and women are dropping dead from anorexia-related illnesses. Nobody drops dead from being fat.
