Be Size Wise

A while back, I posted about the insurance company in the midwest that is firing smokers and is thinking of targeting people who are overweight next. I phrased it as "fatties next". In retrospect, that wasn't very sensitive of me. I was trying to be a little snide and crass to reflect my opinion of the lack of sense of the perpetrator of this policy. In the comments section, a friend of mine mentioned that she had been fired for "being fat" and posted some links that would help people with size awareness. I didn't want them to be overlooked, so I've given them their own post. Please take a look. They are interesting reading.
