egao-gakari: TFA said something about there being a high correlation between book ownership and future success in life. Seem to recall reading somewhere that Rod Blagojewicz had some nutbrained plan to ship a book to every child in Illinois monthly, on the strength of this correlation, and it failed. Badly. Or maybe it just never got started at all./don't care enough to google it.

Too Pretty For Prison: Of course - it's the toys' fault. McDonald's fault, too. It couldn't possibly be the fat-assed parent that is too lazy to cook a decent meal for their children. My small kids get McD's probably once per month. They like the toy and that's the primary reason we go (that, and I like the fries). My kids eat very well. When at a restaurant, my middle daughter asks if she can substitute a veggie for whatever side they offer with the kids' meal (usually fries). Parents that buy their kids too much fat salty garbage are 100% of the problem. It's really easy mom and dad, just say "no". My oldest daughter just turned 10 yesterday. I went to her school for lunch and said I'd bring her anything she wanted (McD's, Taco Bell, whatever). She wanted a Subway Turkey, no cheese, baked chips and a water (and a cookie, of course). That's because I have taught my kids to eat healthy. Please stop blaming everyone and everything because your kid is fat. You're kid is fat because you let it happen. That is all, I'll get off my soapbox now.
