And Helen Keller wept

Hello... Human Rights Commission? My ogre of a boss refuses to respect my right to "call in obese", er... sick.
it's not my fault

"Now, thanks to the American Medical Association, the diagnosis would be you have a disease called obesity (not FAT — that is the modern equivalent of a four-letter obscenity)."

"It’s all part of the increasing medicalization of problems that used to require self-help and discipline to surmount."
I really, really miss the meritocracy.
