“One Tubby, Tubby”

Actually, lots of tubbies:

Bad news for the state of Louisiana. For the third straight year, Louisiana schools have earned an overall grade of “D” in the area of children’s physical activity and health. That means our kids are leading the nation in obesity.

They’re not leading by a little, either:

Statistics show more than 47% of Louisiana children between ages 2 and 10 are overweight or obese. Nationally nearly 17% of American children and adolescents are obese.

Interesting, but I still think its none of my business how fat someone else’s kid is. Yes, the resulting poor health has a societal cost. And yes, the poor parenting that results in all that lard is making the kid’s life harder. I just don’t think either problem is bad enough to justify the insane amount of nanny-statism that would be necessary to fix the problem.
