OBESE FEEL MORE DISCRIMINATION: On the one hand, since they’ll soon outnumber the rest of us, that’s hard to believe. On the other hand, we’re more likely to elect a black president than a fat one. I don’t think William Howard Taft would have a chance today.

UPDATE: Reader Don Wolff writes:

If you look at photographs from a hundred years ago, you’ll see the rich, powerful and elite were often overweight. The poor and working class, then synonymous, were thin. The social critics of the day were outraged by this divide demanding justice to resolve it. America applied itself to correct that issue. Today, the rich, powerful and elite are thin. It is the working class and poor who are overweight. The critics are still unhappy.

Well, being unhappy is their job.
