The pathetic part of this post, other than the obvious reference to the post office, is the slovenly appearance of the morbidly obese duo in the cartoon. I don’t believe in the government dictating diet, but I share Mrs. O’s concern for the overweight, pre-diabetic condition of so many of America’s youth. Kids in middle school are being given “statin” drugs to lower their cholesterol because their diets are so bad and they don’t exercise enough. Our affluent society is raising a generation of obese children that will be living on pharmaceuticals early in life to control diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
