    Glad to see Austin come around.

    Maybe there should be affirmative action for the obese? :-)

  3. Jordan says:

    Vicki, we’re in America. There needs to be affirmative action for those at a healthy weight.

    There is no nursing shortage.

    There is no doctor shortage.

    How would anyone know that? Absent a free-market in medicine and medical training, both the demand for; and supply of medical professionals is distorted and dysfunctional.

    CEO’s can’t be fat…let’s see how this study holds up in upcoming years. Interested if the trend continues to showcase an incentive for “healthy” and “fit” looking business leaders.

    What is an endorsement these days?

    Very odd to claim I’ve endorsed something by linking to a post that reads, “Though I do like some of the above [ideas] very much, I am not endorsing or promoting any of them in this post.”

    I offered to change this post, but then I got this follow up message from Austin:

    “I don’t mind. I do actually like your HSA idea and have said so. I’d defend it.”
