Mom and I actually talked about this last week (it was published in the Tennesseean before Time ran it).

We do agree it is partially to blame on the heat. Nobody wants to go outside and be active when it is 100 degrees and 90% humidity.

But I'm thinking of most of the fat people we went to high school with and they were all Yankees. So, I'm gonna blame it on the Yankees that moved down to the South and screwed up the statistics.

i had a sneaking suspicion this was probably written by someone in the south, which is just lovely when it gets reprinted in the national press and reinforces every southern stereotype known to man.

(i am trying so hard not to go julia sugarbaker)

geez. everyobody is all about the fat today. CNN's lead article:

maybe this is why i've suddenly been able to fit into S t-shirts again.

I'm not fat because I'm Southern. I'm fat b/c I'm 'Merican, dammitt!

Linda said...
