Dear Seattle: Why stare at a "morbidly obese" person? Is our society that messed up that we spend precious seconds and MINUTES (really long time, little Asian man!) staring at someone who has been in society for many a decade? Is it so far-fetched that a fat person exists on this planet? I have been all over this nation of ours, and by far, Seattle, you are the worst for this ridiculous transgression. I've got an idea, Seattle—grow up and accept people as humans. Then maybe you will be closer to being one of those humans instead of a rude form of Cro-Magnon. Signed, the "morbidly obese" guy who is not a Paleolithic creature.
