Women's appearances are *always* picked on--that is why I am sick of hearing about her weight. Maybe not you, but coverage in general has been sexist.

[I appreciate your feedback, but let me point out, if she were a man with that kind of excess weight (clearly health-detrimental), I would have written the same post. I never referred to her gender or ethnicity.

My key issue is that shouldn't someone promoting good health for the nation, be healthy? I think you'll find that there's no study backed by science that would suggest being so many "pounds" above nominal weight is a good idea.

I agree that altogether too many women are judged upon ridiculous standards and "photoshopped" magazine covers, but in this case, I do believe what I pondered was fair.

In any case, sincere thanks for your note. Best, Mark]
