City statistics released last month showed that nearly 40 percent of public-school children in kindergarten through eighth grade are overweight or obese. Mayor Bloomberg is taking action to help the people, and the state, fight this disturbing and dangerous trend, that is eroding the health of the public, and increasing the burden on the state with rising health care costs and the increasing threat to quality of life.
Lord Christopher Monckton, using his 'Lord' title for promoting himself and presenting charts that are out of context. This is the problem with people that hold their own interests above the common good. Oh my, that sounds socialist!!! Funny how pots are always calling kettles black. What is really funny is how people like Monckton don't recognize the difference between social responsibility, and socialism.
