Maine Now more Obese than Indiana

Wow. I am surprised Maine is now in the top 10 for obesity. An index listing all 50 states is on page 2 of that link. What is sad is that 49 states have an obesity percentage of 20% or higher. Somewhere in the afterlife, Aldous Huxley is cursing himself for not making at least two castes in his dystopian classic, A Brave New World, content being overweight and ecstatic being obese. Can't you imagine "Eating Etas" or "Thick Thetas"? I constantly mention this, but it feels certain forces have us screaming down a road towards that world. I hope it's just paranoia on my part.
