      but it's just too damn delicious. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a 16-ounce ribeye to grill... ;)

        our national health care, I hope that you balance those 16 ounces with four meatless days before your next carnivorous pig-out.

          I had a roasted chicken for dinner, but I don't think you need to worry about my effect on health care costs in any case. I do hardcore cardio 45 minutes, 4-5 days a week, with a full-body anaerobic regime on the off days. My BMI is 15.3, last time I checked.

          So thanks for the concern, but I think I'm good.
