I got back from Disney World yesterday with the family. Magical place - we had a great time. The concerning thing was that 90% of the people there were overweight and probably 50% were obese. And a huge percentage of the kids were fat. I have never seen more of those little electric scooters around that disabled people ride in. I am sure that some of them really did have medical problems, but a Disney worker told us that her guess is that well over 1/2 of the people in the scooters rent them because they are too fat and out of shape to walk around Disney.
If you were from another country and your sole impression of the US was from going to Disney you would think that we are a fat, ugly country.
It was really disturbing. I wonder what, if anything, can slow or reverse America's bulging waistline?
