    Should they remove themselves from the public eye?

    According to what she said, she knows it's an issue, and her doctor knows it's an issue. So assuming that she'd "doing nothing" may not be accurate. People struggle with their weight. If they didn't, Jenny Craig would be a pauper (assuming she's a real person).

    Then again maybe she wrote the email to herself. How have her ratings been? This is not an example of bullying. In fact there's nothing news worthy about it at all. With all of the attention that the First Lady has drawn to obesity you have to expect people to be more aware of it.

    It wasn't necessary as it was, since the e-mail she received was private. She was by no means forced to respond in any way. She CHOSE to respond since she saw an opportunity to use her position to marshal the troops in order to receive personal support.

    Had she simply used her time to discuss the way unrealistic ideas of feminine beauty are destructive to girls self-esteem and used herself as an example of a successful larger woman, that would have been great. She didn't do that, though, as she made herself the focus of her piece in order to get support, she indulged in some intellectual dishonesty while doing so, and turned it into a spat with the person who sent her the e-mail, who DID have some valid points, albeit delivered in a not very nice way.

    It is okay to be obese. It's her life and her body. It's not hurting anyone else.

    Should obese school teachers lose their jobs or be assigned governmental personal trainers so our kids don't emulate them?

    It is ridiculously absurd that anyone thinks kids will emulate the fat news lady in spite of all the ridicule obese kids get at school.

    Sick people, maybe. Not unhealthy people. Unhealthy people may never miss a day of work, but then drop dead of a cardiac at 40 because they didn't bother to take care of themselves.

    No, they should get healthy.

    Hey, you don't have to tell me it's hard. I lost like 100 pounds about 8 years ago. She can too.

    It's okay to be obese when it only affects your life. When you have young impressionable minds looking up to you, it's your responsibility to show them how to live healthy lives.

    I think if there is an obese teacher, they should be counseled on how their appearance influences children.

    That's their choice. It's less of a burden on society than people living to be 90.

    And if they choose not to?

    Yes, because children's peers don't ever pick on obese people.
