@AZ2SB - But, really, like most panic buys, the panic wears off, right? That was my thought.

An, but seeing as how .22 ammo shortages are from panic buying, it IS an issue since people do have it.

@Barron - Anyone, at any size, can have those types of issues in the blood work or lipid panel. But sometimes, obesity isn't the culprit for disease it's more dependent on how you got that obesity. In other words, someone who eats a lot of food without refined and processed carbohydrates and sugar is likely going to have a better bloodwork report than someone who is even moderately overweight and eats sugar and donuts.
Mix in exercise and that will also make a huge difference to how healthy "on paper" someone is.
We've all heard the stories about thin, seemingly fit people who have heart attacks when their blood work is stellar. So why can't a fit but fat person be a real life thing, too?
There is so much more to medicine and health science than how much a person weighs.

duo4now - you are one of the people who bust the myth that being overweight is categorically unhealthy!
It's not always the case of course, but there are a lot of larger folks who exercise, have great endurance and have above average health. Nobody ever mentions them or worse, they are dismissed as lying about their good health or abilities. So wrong....imo it's just sizeism but at the same time, also proof that everyone is individual. There is no one size fits all way of living or exercising.

It's just off the freeway at Wagon Wheel. I think it's called Riverpark. Or something similar. It's a multi-developer project in which several different types of houses all surround an urban village, with a whole foods, a park and daycare as well as the usual suspects of shops.

@EastBeach - That's interesting, and it does make sense. Looking at other places in CA and even Nevada, there is this trend to remake entire cities. Look at what they did in Oxnard recently with the new development. It's like a city within a city. People seem to really gravitate towards that kind of central urban living.
My only question is whether or not it would work in SB, since most of the people who could afford to live in this housing would be able to afford a lot of other choices, which is different than most of the other urban developments that are fast selling out in other areas.
I guess we wait and we see!

His risk management job is ironic. (Or is the right word coincidental, I can't ever remember.) But still, made me smirk.

Getaclue - Just so you're aware, posting a quote and then putting the word "DUMB" (in all caps, no less) under it doesn't mean what you've just explained it means. Not to about 99% of people who have reading comprehension, anyway. Maybe your intention was to call the entire article dumb, but that quote and the word dumb after it indicates that you're calling the quote dumb.
Then again, since most of your commenting history is filled with negative, reductive and just one-word insults, I'm not going to waste any more time than I have already.
It's up to you if you want to continue to keep digging yourself into a hole and going on the attack when it's calmly pointed out to you that what you said wasn't cool.
On The S.B. Questionnaire: Eric Maldonado

@getaclue - Sooooo, having balked at the idea that you insulted the subject of this interview, you went on to...insult him by calling one of his questionnaire answers "dumb."
Apparently, you did mean to insult him in your first comment but backtracked and then just forgot your whole denial?
This is a nice person featured in this article. If you don't care for the way he answered the questions, fair enough. But he's not dumb, nor is the purpose of profiling people in our community. There's a lot of other "real" news on the front page. There are always soft, local stories that accompany real news on the Indy.
I think you just had a problem with this person, which is both unfortunate and kind of juvenile.
