  •  Has Rev. Al been sick? Or just on a very (6+ / 0-)

    successful weight-loss program?

    I was worried about him when I saw him last night on MSNBC

    •  He successfully lost a lot of weight. (11+ / 0-)

      He looks great if you ask me.

        Her lost way over 100 lbs and it aged him a lot. He is only 58 but could pass for 70. Also the guy never takes  a day off,as far as I could tell he did not take a day off all summer and never seems to take   a vacation.
        Maybe his health is good but he looks gaunt.

          later in life it does make you look older. I know, it has happened to me, you have excess skin and it sags and wrinkles and unless you are rich you live with it. But, long term someone who does lose the weight is healthier especially with diabetes and heart disease.

          Rock on Rev. Al!

        •  He reminds me of Al Roker (0+ / 0-)

          They both look like guys who used to be fat. That's the toll obesity takes on the body.

          •  Now I frankly do not think Al looks older 'coz of (0+ / 0-)

            it. It's like our friend I mentioned above. I think he looks like a big boned guy who is too skinny now. And who the hell are we to talk about what other people look like! :) I sure the hell ain't in that position!

            if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

        •  Well I wouldn't go 70 but he does look gaunt. And (0+ / 0-)

          yea, maybe that much weight loss in later years does that. We have a friend who is ohhhh 5 years or so younger than us (52), he did the bypass thing. Lost 100+. And yea, he looks gaunt to me now. Like he really should put 20-30 back on. Our friend is like 6'2" and I think his body isn't matching his bones anymore. But hell, he's happy, more healthy!

        Would hate to lose his passionate, funny opinions. It's a real art to be able to slam someone completely and be funny at the same time, so much more effective than straight anger, IMHO.
