Maybe Fat Ain't So Bad

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.
