1. Obesity. Making American children more snuggly since 1972.

    This week’s cover features this blue-eyed little angel warning us of America’s coming obesity crisis. We’re fat, she’s (he?) saying, and we’re only getting fatter. So why is she on our cover? A new four-part HBO documentary (premiering next Monday and Tuesday) called “The Weight of the Nation” warns that the coming generation of Americans could even have shorter lifespans than the previous one. In Newsweek, Gary Taubes, author of “Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It,” takes a critical look at the film, and writes about the greater issue of obesity in America.
