The future looks fat

That's a lot of 99-cent meals. And to forestall any complaints about headline insensitivity, I have to note that both USA Weekend and Time had the same advice this weekend. The sidebar in what's becoming Survivalist Weekly (first the economy, now true disaster) is not online, so I am poaching: "Get in shape! The cruel reality of physics is that overweight people move more slowly and need more space, so they have more trouble fleeing. On 9/11, people with low physical abilities were three times as likely to be hurt while evacuating the Towers." That said, I'm not heartless. I know from experience it is far, far harder to lose it than it is to keep it off. Actually, the reverse is true, too. Which means little kids living on clown calories are getting screwed.
