The Cult of Atkins

The Cult of Atkins responds to a UC Berkeley student named Alex Mojaher.

Get a grip people! Seriously.

I also like the not-so-subtle jabs at Berkeley. Frankly, the whole east bay is really funky. As a peninsula person I may have a slight bias, but really, that "something in the air" must be all that reefer we smoke out here man, you know, it being the number one cash crop in California and all (how else can you explain Arnold Schwarzenegger?)

He's probably doing it for college credit. Sure, he's not fully informed on the details, but really, who the fuck cares? Is writing a hit piece on this guy really necessary? This endless desire and need to "set the record straight" is a great example of the diet obsessive.

Been there, done that.

The Florida Police Chief

HAha, I knew this was going to be commented on. Setting aside the "straight talk", "personal responsibility" and "the truth hurts" bullshit, look at what this jackhole did. Whether that some (but obviously not all) of the officers were overweight doesn't negate common courtesy and understanding that you don't bring this up in front of the group for everyone to be privy too.

That's just plain ol' common sense and compassion. Nothing wrong with encouraging people to lose weight it's just that it's not right to single them out amongst the entire department, it was a poor exercise of judgement and his ass was fired, rightfully. Perhaps it makes some people feel good about themselves when they, or see others, impose shame and blame on some folks (of course, they justify it to themselves that they're doing it "for their own good") but I don't find it amusing.
