3:30 PM -- Reuters reports that "about 60 million Americans are obese, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention."

Sixty million. That's better than one in five (which seems conservative to this subway commuter).

The author of the latest report on the healthcare crisis provoked by such larditude says, "We're going to have to tackle this they way we did smoking – with a variety of big strategies."

OK. So no fatties in bars or restaurants then? That should help.
