Okay, actually be a Steve Woolpert, in response to a Washington Post Style Invitational contest asking readers to submit "instructions" for something (anything), written in the style of a famous person.
Originally, I was going to write my posts about weight (and culture) in the heat of outrage. Then I was going to write one single good, analytical post once I'd thought my way all through the issue, and my opinion was relatively settled.
I've decided that instead, it might be useful to do this as a series of LJ conversations, because, like so many things, there isn't necessarily a "right" answer.
This could be long and rambly. Consider yourself warned. ( Collapse )
