Government Couldn't Cut Fat...

...with a steak knife. Trumpeting my own horn again. (I just had to write about it at Badda-Blog.)

Anyone see Soucheray's column from this weekend?

Let me make this short. (I hear a collective sigh of relief.) How much healthier do you expect the government will help us get with smoking policies, tax payer money to help diminish smoking, legislation to curtail it, and benefits to organizations who toe the line? What are the unintended consequences?

Now, how much healthier do you expect the government will help us get with obesity policies, tax payer money to help diminish certain foods, legislation to curtail them, and benefits to organizaions who toe the line? Any unintended consequences?

Helmets, child seats for cars, and seat belts?

Once again, what's next... and where do we draw the line at surrendering our own responsibility?
