Doonesbury (6/27/10)

Earlier today, my wife and I chatted with one of the neighborhood kids. He’s a high school student who’s been cutting our grass this summer, but no more. Starting next week, he’ll be living downstate, attending a military academy and preparing for a stint in the Marine Corps. He’s a driven young man who’s eager for a challenge. Fortunately for the Marines, he’s also one of a dwindling number of youth who manages to maintain a healthy weight. In fact, according to a group of retired generals, America’s young people will soon be too fat to fight. That’s pretty troubling, and as good a reason as any to start packing healthy lunches for our kids.
