this article from TCS blames the US government for the fattening of America. It's not very good, but I really enjoyed this paragraph:


Obese-Americans now claim their own hyphen, and their own lobby. Southwest Airlines has started charging heavyset jet-setters one seat for each bum cheek. Fat has so dominated the news of late that networks now have stock "fat footage" - low-angle camera shots of bulging abdomens, sagging rumps, and corpulent John Does sucking down cheese steak on random city street corners.
