Having a fat day?

The media has spent a lot of time telling people about the obesity problem in this country. Apparently not enough people are paying attention since it seems to be getting worse, particularly among children. The consequences of obesity at any age can be devastating. Or troubling, in a mildly amusing way.

Microsoft is aiming high with its Xbox. And no doubt they'll suceed. Now I'm not blaming Microsoft for obesity problems. More I point this out as an example of our society's hypocrisy. On the one hand we decry the growing obesity problem, on the other we deify technology that keeps us firmly planted on the couch.

Pass the deep fried saturated fat and the DVR remote.
