Regarding Editor's Notebook: "Fat: Let's get over it":

Hooray! In a world beset by poverty, war, torture, and slavery, what in the world makes people think they can get one-up on someone because of their appearance?!!

Some day, in a perfect world, tiny people who think they are height/weight proportionate because of their great self-discipline will come to terms with the truth of body shape. Anyone who has seen the emaciated bodies of anorexia or starvation in AIDS patients can understand the beauty of fat, and the body's ability to produce it.

Maybe narrow bodies produce narrow minds.
