Lipidledger Coming True

there is a  marvelous short story written in the 1970s titled "Lipidlegger," about a future where the federal government has banned eggs, bacon, and butter, in the interest of public health, and this news story shows we are getting there under Comrade Obama:
The federal committee responsible for nutrition guidelines is calling for the adoption of “plant-based” diets, taxes on dessert, trained obesity “interventionists” at worksites, and electronic monitoring of how long Americans sit in front of the television.


  1. What I find fascinating is that the feds are doubling down on the anti-fat dogma just as the research community is coming to the realization that they've been wrong about fat for the last 40 years.

  2. What did someone once say of the Catholic Church? Always fighting the previous century's battles?
