I'm not familiar with Maoxian, but I know what he means. What's really weird is that we are the only population in the history of the world where our poor population is the fattest!

Ha, I admit to knowing who Sportacus is! Steve Edwards has numerous posts about obesity in America at, including a post that links to this extremely depressing interactive fat map.
