Fit And Fat Is The Way To Go

Tom Maguire has some perceptive comments about that recent CDC study showing that "overweight" people live longer than "those of normal weight." Weight, it seems, doesn't necessarily correlate with how much you exercise, and many "overweight" people are quite, quite fit—like our jog-happy president. That could explain the odd results. So put down that Cinnabon, David Brooks!
