    all fast food chains and outlaw potato chips, fries and soft drinks, you can get rid of childhood obesity within a couple of years.

    thanks for listening

      to McDonalds or eat potato chips. I actually don't do either. I don't consider what McDonalds serves "food," and I cut out junk food decades ago when I was in grad school and on a serious budget. I figured I'd save money by eliminating inessential foods like munchies and soft drinks and meat. So I did. (Sorry, chocolate IS essential!)

        we also just could not drive cars, not smoke, not eat cake, not drink, not text on cellphones, not read blogs all day long, not watch TV, not ... we all could just not do all that, but we do, don't we?

        nah, nah, must be "verboten", or else ... :-)
