Is Obama’s surgeon general too fat?

No! When willpeople stop assuming thin peeple are healthy and fat people are not healthy. Yes, there are many diseases associated with obesity but Regina Benjamin is not obese. Also, many thin people have unhealthy lifestyles: they can drink, smoke, not excercise, or be ill with less visible diseases. Please see my 2 posts on girls and food and this article on Salon.

  1. Margot, at Books Inc. on Chestnut there is a wonderful selection of adolescent novels.. The gal that is in charge is very committed to her work. (sorry, I don’t have her card in front of me) I went in to get Dorie 1 book for Christmas and left with 4 and a list. And she had them all out for glorious preview. Those trashy clique books were tucked away quite nicely, thank God. Dorie and her friends are reading the Hunger Game right now.
