Noted author Orson Scott Card takes on scientists and journalists on both sides of the issue with this article that suggests that the whole conundrum about obesity is overblown. I found it interesting from the point of view of a pseudo journalist and a formerly overweight person (I’ve kept those 50 lbs. off for 16 years).
It seems that Card is getting quite testy as of late. He recently wrote a rather negative piece about Star Trek that got a lot of people (are Trekkies of the people species?) in an uproar (see here and here for samples). Still, he has a flair for making his points in an interesting manner.
