An animated map with timeline of the fatness of the good old USA from CDC and MSN. The Old North State has grown to 20 – 24% fatties since the less than 15% in 1992.

  1. It’s pretty interesting to watch the map develop, especially looking at the sea of “no data” turn into a sea of orange and red.

    On the other hand, maybe the next time Gordon Gano expresses a hope, the nation will pay attention.

    I wish I could find a copy of the poem “The Fat Enter Heaven” by Wesley McNair. I can’t recall enough of it to recite but there is more and more opportunity. It’s a fine and sympathetic poem.
