So she is a bad role model because she is obese and obesity kills. 18,000 Americans died of AIDS last year.

Everyday about 15 people are killed and hundreds injured on the nations highways due to distracted driving. Many of those are attributed to texting while driving. If any of those who are blogging about the role model of an overweight newscaster have ever texted while driving...remember "You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye."

Babs, your logic is tenuous at best, it presumes that the question asked was valid, appropriate and inoffensive...if it was invalid, inappropriage or offensive, people have the right to say "stuff it".

End of Discussion. Well stated, but as most comments here - totally off subject. Q.E.D.
