Weighty Issues

Obesity is a problem in the US, and I’ve written about its practical aspects before (our scanners cannot hold people whose weight and girth approximate livestock, for instance).

This doctor in New Hampshire probably was doing the right thing, trying to get a patient with a weight problem to wake up and smell the coffee (it’s there behind the third helping), and for his efforts now gets to be investigated by the NH Atty General’s office.

The NH Medical Board either a) has information about this that’s way more serious than that already announced, or b) is filled with utter morons without enough do.

Time will tell.
