This obesity epidemic stretches far and wide, according to the papers and the TV, and personal observation. It has been misrepresented, though. Oh sure, it is a big story, really big as it were, with lots of rich juicy details, but its not really an epidemic like the bird flu or the plague. It's more a case of misplaced identities. Entranced during a hypnotically vulnerable and suggestible stage of life into believing that only the young or the fabulously remote (celebrities) deserve the gift of leanness, we robotically accept the equation that "grown-up" equals fat, and thus perpetuate the fashion.
