'You Want to Upsize That?'

God bless us. We just can't stop hitting fast food lines, and we decline to be more active.

The CDC issued its obesity report today, and we southerners especially love our food and can't seem to get enough exercise. Mississippi, Alabama and good ole Tennessee "led" the rankings. Seems like our test scores and graduation rates below the Mason-Dixon line are lower, too. Meanwhile, Colorado is the least obese state. Folks over there love outdoor activities and balanced diets, and stay away from fried foods ... I think there's a formula here somewhere.

Will and I played nine holes on a junior par 3 course tonight. During the round, he said, "Dad, this is fun." We may have a little Ben Crenshaw on our hands; the boy made several putts between five and 20 feet. We head back to the links in a few days.

Funny, I didn't see any heavy kids or parents on the course tonight.

I hear you loud and clear! Supersize Me was a great movie. It should be shown in every elementary school.
