Fat chance

Fat chance: Whew. You don’t want to know. Anyway, if I’d been here earlier I would have probably pointed to this NYT story about the National Geographic cover story on obesity and its irony considering that the anti-apple-pie crowd at the Center for Science in the Public Interest are whining about National Geographic Kids encouraging kids to get fat by carrying advertising from fine products like Hostess Twinkies and Kellogg’s Smorz Cereal (Ummmm. Smorz Cereal).

(Side note: I would like to observe that the article marks the first time I have noticed the by-line “Nat Ives” on a magazine-related article in the NYT. Nat Ives? Natives? It’s always neat when one has parents with a sense of humor.)
