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.
