Obesity Rises Faster in Poor Teens
  • I don't mean to be callous, but I think there is a major problem here with the definition of terms. By the world's standard, people with too much to eat are not really "poor"
  • Boy, this article is full of bullshit. Check out this quote: "The campaign against obesity and the struggle against poverty are, in fact, one and the same," he said. "...Healthier diets cost more." That is in direct contradiction to earlier in the article, where it attributes the increased caloric intake among poor teens to sweetened drinks. In other words, healthier diets cost LESS! Last time I looked, the healthier choice (tap water or a drinking fountain) was a lot cheaper than the unhealthy one (soft drinks). The problem is not their lack of money, but their lack of good parenting and/or education about appropriate lifestyles. Curing their poverty would not help at all. Give 'em all $50,000 per year, and if they simply had more money, they would drink more soft drinks, not less.

Former US treasury chief Lloyd Bentsen dies at 85, thus living about as long as Joe Kennedy. Of course, I knew Joe Kennedy and you, Bentsen, were no Joe Kennedy.

The top headline in Norway today: "Man finds badger under bed"
  • You regular readers know that I lived in Oslo for years and the Aftenposten often had top headlines like "purse snatched at airport" - and this in a city with more than 500,000 people.
  • I'm trying to remember why I was in such a hurry to leave when I had several years left on my contract. Looking back on it, boredom seems like a good thing.

If you have any interest in Kylie Minogue's topless scene, here is the film on a Region 4 (Aussie) PAL DVD. I found this to be a completely watchable girly movie with a great score of 50s do-wop music and some spectacular photography from the same cinematographer who did King Kong and the Lord of the Rings movies. Click on the image below for info from the American importer.

The importer also sells DVD players which can play
films from every region. Click below for info.
