Random Factoid

Did you know that Southern Baptists tend to be the fattest Americans? Catholics are somewhere in the middle of the range; Jews and other non-Christians have the lowest average body weight. This from Fat Land - How Americans Became the Fattest People in the World, which theorizes that the fundamentalist focus on other "sins" like smoking and oh, say, homosexuality encouraged their followers to turn to safe pursuits like wholesale gluttony. I don't know whether I buy it, but the book's a great, compelling read.
