As a lovely counterpoint to this tirade about the "fat" industry and whether it has any basis, Michael Moore posted on Facebook about the walks he has been going on for the last 42 weeks. I won't post the whole thing and can't figure out how to post a link, but if you look for Michael Moore and find a post from Monday, December 31, you'll get there. Here is a short excerpt:

"...Remember, one of the main tenets of capitalism is to have the consumer filled with fear, insecurity, envy and unhappiness so that we can spend, spend, spend our way out of it and, dammit, just feel better for a little while. But we don't, do we? The path to happiness - and deep down, we all know this -- is created by love, and being kind to oneself, sharing a sense of community with others, becoming a participant instead of a spectator, and being in motion. Moving. Moving around all day. Lifting things, even if it's yourself. Going for a walk every day ..."

ThyPeace, walked today, and feels pretty good about that and the delicious supper of rice, lentils, yogurt, and apple butter (we're out of chutney...) she had.
