People Magazine's annual quest for the Sexiest Man Alive will come to an end Wednesday when the winner is announced. This year, the editors are taking a lighter approach, launching "funny is the new sexy" campaign which will likely lead to a more unconventionally attractive winner. After 26 years, they've learned a valuable lesson. Brooding five o' clock shadows and bright, blue wild man eyes don't always make for the ideal guy.
See People's very first SMA choice for proof. At least twice a year the magazine doles out praise in the form of "sexiest" and "most beautiful" lists. It's only logical that a few of those list-makers let it get to their head. Here are

You'd think it couldn't get any worse, then it does. I'm talking about the size of the American people. It's no wonder that first lady Michele Obama has made fighting obesity the cause of her time in the White House. Maybe we can save the next generation because this adult one is getting bigger by the year.
Today's news: A solid one in four Americans is considered obese, and in nine states, 30 percent of the population is obese. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the increase is enough to make obesity an epidemic and "a major public health threat." Not surprising, when you consider that in 2007, three states claimed 30 percent of its residents to be obese, and in 2000, no states hit the 30-percent threshold.
We are moving in the wrong direction.
Here's a closer look at some of the frightening numbers:
- There are more obese adults in the South (28.4 percent) and the Midwest (28.2 percent) than in the Northeast and the West (both 24 percent).
- Mississippi has the
