The first is about Michelle Obama's commitment to healthy eating, not just for her family, but as part of an agenda. I say Go Michelle! [Chandler voice] Could she be any more of a role model? It will be interesting to see how her agenda takes shape in terms of concrete items, and the kind of effect it might have. I don't have a ton of hope that America will suddenly learn how to eat healthy and exercise, but I'm sure her commitment won't hurt.
The other is from the Proof blog, which I enjoy reading every once in a while--it's basically a bunch of people telling stories about drinking. Right up my alley, right? This entry tells the story of how a woman gave up alcohol and ended up running a marathon.
