    And this is how the BMI can be abused, folks . . . VIA Red Eye:


    Mass. Parents Angry Over Kids Sent Home With 'Fat Reports'

    Published July 17, 2010
    NewsCore

    EXCERPT:

    Massachusetts parents are angry and dismayed over a public school policy that sees students getting sent home with “fat letters,” myFOXboston.com reported late Friday.

    Many schools across the state began sending Body Mass Index (BMI) reports and letters home with students in order to flag possible obesity issues to parents.

    "To have a piece of paper like this come home in their backpack with them is very, very concerning to me," said mother Lori-Ann Sumner, whose nine-year-old daughter Shelby -- an active gymnast and athlete -- was characterized as “borderline overweight.”

    "Her BMI was 19.43, which brought her to 84.38 percent, and 85th percentile is considered overweight,” said social worker Sumner, who is worried that children and parents will take the information in the wrong way.

    Linky and stuff...

    At least the government will know ahead of time what size of electronic straight jacket you will need!

    LOL! Now that's funny!

    On a more serious note, I expect we will see rates of bulimia and anorexia just skyrocket. :(

    Save for the smoking and drinking (and insulin-dependent diabetes), I'm the same way.
    Grandpa smoked and drank all his life, and died of old age at 90 in 1936...



    Dad smoked and drank all his life, and died of old age at 91 in 1986...



    ...it's a family tradition!

    In which case, we will have a new crisis, requiring social workers, medical intervention and even more government spending! And, more scrawny, photogenic waifs for the fashion industry to promote (and for Roman Polanski to hit on). It's a win-win for the left.

    Grandpa's pic was taken in 1919 when Dad (in uniform) returned from occupation duty in Germany. Dad's suit was okay in the seventies when everything was wierd!

    BTW, I'm wearing one of my serial numbered imported Harris tweed sport coats. Nothin' weird or cheap about that! :p

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.

    If you're trying to tell me, you're weird, and you have money, the proper word is "eccentric". . . my bosses are (self-MADE) millionaires, and they are eccentric. :p
