Aunt Betty might have come into your life to teach you a little lesson about looking beyond the gift and (really) seeing the giver.

Dear Amy: "Want to Intervene" had a desire to confront (overweight) parents about their (increasingly) overweight kids.

Your "mind your own business" philosophy is why there are so many fatties running around.
