"Fat and Greed"(Published as: "Nothing succeeds like excess: corporate greed goes unchecked in a fat-phobic society." Women’s Review of Books, 18:10-11, Jul '01)

Excerpt:
I have a fantasy about what the covers of popular magazines might look like if the publishers stopped using the obsession with universal slenderness to sell each month’s issue, and – to indulge in a fresh, new look -- focused on the contribution economic greed makes to ill health:
  • LOSE 20, 40, 60 POUNDS OF EXCESS RESOURCE CONSUMPTION, and Never, Ever Re-Gain Them!
  • SHOCKING FACT! The cost of providing basic education, health care, food and water for all the people on earth is less than the net worth of Bill Gates!
  • SPECIAL OFFER: New Equality Breakthrough!

I refuse to buy any magazine which has blurbs on the front about dieting or losing weight. No matter how much I want to read other things in it. My little rebellion.
