NJ Creates New Agency To Fight Chubbiness

State agencies. Is there anything they can't do?

New Jersey's health department is escalating the battle against the bulge by starting an Office of Nutrition and Fitness to better coordinate programs aimed at preventing obesity.

New Jersey may be the first state to create such a government body.

...

Fred M. Jacobs, commissioner of the state Department of Health and Senior Services... says he wants to tackle the obesity problem through education, support groups and encouraging physical activity, rather than by banning particular foods. One goal is to "de-normalize" the massive portions served in restaurants.

...

He is mulling the idea of having schools notify parents, via report cards, of children with weight problems.

Eh, health is good, obesity is bad, and kids should stop swilling all that soda.

Still... Governor Corzine was last seen lecturing us on the need to wear seat-belts to insure safe driving, after driving at unsafe speeds without wearing a seat-belt.

And now he's crusading against... fatness.

His next crusade will be against shaggy-looking facial hair.

I have to say I'm less inclined to take his advice on that matter than I would be to, say, take that of Allison "Stokes" Stokke.*

* I assume she's called Stokes. How could you be a jock with the last name "Stokke" and not be called "Stokes"? It just doesn't seem possible.
