I saw a thing on the TV news this morning about a “crisis” in France due to the rise of obesity in that country. A certain amount from schadenfreude from the American reporter, because a year or two ago the book “French Women Don’t Get Fat” was a big hit, but it turns out that in fact they do. My favorite part of the story, though, was the headline for the section: “Don’t Let Them Eat Cake”.
