The Bigger They Come

People today are pretty particular about all aspects of their lives. The obesity epidemic news of a half-decade ago has made us very careful about the food we eat and being more active, the news about today’s wars has made us more aware of social issues, and the memories of the recent global economic disaster have made us very financially observant, to say the least.
