So, what do you think?

Personally, I question the effectiveness of big government social programs like the First Lady’s Let’s Move program. I think that change is most effective when it happens at the grassroots level.

And while I don’t know if we should consider a multi-million dollar reality tv show to be “grassroots”, we all know about the powerful effect that television has upon on our lives.

Maybe instead of tv causing obesity, it can help solve the problem.
