update on being an activist

Apropos of my previous entry, I received a good letter from Mr Weiss. Among other things he asked for references to the studies I mentioned. I am sending him Big Fat Lies by Glenn Gaesser. I also pointed him at Paul Campos' The Obesity Myth, which the local library has. He responded by saying he is an information junkie and he has picked up The Obesity Myth from the library.

So that seems like a pretty good outcome to my activism.

Oh, yay, indeed!

(Glad to hear that the effort to engage with him seems to have been worth the icky feelings you went through for it, too.)

Excellent!

Delightful icon, by the way. I was just looking at the source this morning.

Thanks! It's too bad that source's t-shirts don't come in my size. What's it about when people are depicted on a t-shirt that doesn't come in a size said people could actually wear?

Bravo! It's great to hear that Mr. Weiss is open to expanding his understanding, and I'm really glad you stepped up to offer him the opportunity.
