I’ve been accused (at least by association) by so many pomocon partisans of being pro-Obama, I’m almost starting to believe it myself. So here’s great news. Obama’s much-publicized concern about our obesity problem has spawned suggestions, yes even on national news, that we should require things like, you know, sidewalks in neighborhoods, and maybe even find ways to encourage having things to walk to nearby, like grocery stores. This will save enough of the money we spend on treating obese people to make socialized medicine affordable. I don’t know whether the Presidential Commission on Fighting Obesity by Zoning Localism will cost enough to cancel out those savings; but since I’ve also been accused of supporting big government regulation and social engineering, I guess I must be in favor of this new inititiative to make us a slimmer nation.
Now I’m going to leave this cyber-cafe and drive 8 blocks back to the inaccessible-by-foot one-block cul-de-sac where I’m spending my summer. I exhort you all, in the Marxist spirit I am said to be possessed by, to eat more corn-oil fried corn-syrup products so we can continue to precipitate the obesity crisis that will lead inexorably to the Great Localist Revolution.
