And now a word from my critics

In response to "Put down that Whopper before the government has to intervene again", today's Sound Off in The Waukesha Freeman:

This is in response to James Wigderson’s article in Thursday’s edition of the Freeman. As far as I’m concerned, Mr. Wigderson, this country has reached an epidemic. When it comes to obesity, there are some 15-year-old kids now being weighed in at 300 pounds, and there have been documented increases of diabetes and other diseases related to weight. This is something that needs to be addressed. It needs to be engaged in. If people want to go to McDonald’s or Burger King and have a triple Whopper, I’d be the last person to stop them. I think people need to be more informed on what choices they are making when it comes to their health. When it comes to health care in Wisconsin, the majority of smallbusiness owners are for the Healthy Wisconsin plan. Many of them identify themselves as Republican. I think you need to do some more work on both of those issues.
