I've been meaning to shout the Postbourgie podcast. This particular episode features a discussion on American Taliban and the perils of discussing the BMI. That last part springs from Monica Potts' post (which I generally agreed with) on BMI a few weeks back, and the shitstorm that ensued. I was thinking yesterday about topics, on this blog, which are always hard to discuss. It's weird because people always say "race is hard to talk about." I haven't found that to be true. I have found that obesity is, far and away, the hardest issue.
