Dear parent, your kid is fat

Daily Caller:
Chubby elementary school children in Flagstaff, Ariz., have more than just bullies to worry about. If they’re too fat, their school will notify their parents.

Starting in the fall, students in the Flagstaff district will be weighed and measured at school. Students who are found to be overweight, marginally overweight, or underweight will have a letter sent home to their parents, which will include graphs showing a range of appropriate weights for a given age and height.

If a kid called another kid fat, I'm pretty sure it would result in a suspension for hate speech or bullying or some such thing, but it's okay when it comes from Big Brother.

Now that he government is in the health care business, this is only the beginning. How long before we hear about a "fat tax?"
