Tweety from one of my longtime fora, GeekCulture, has started a new blog, American Fairy Tales. He only has one post so far, but more are promised. The concept is original: America lacks fairy tales like the Brothers Grimm or Hans Christian Anderson. The story posted, about an ogre named Ormley, is cleverly written and contains just the right amount of descriptive phrases and humor. Unfortunately, the message of the story demonstrates the author’s wholehearted subscription to the popular media’s propaganda that fat and overweight are caused by eating fried, high-fat-content foods and that those foods, as well as being overweight or obese, leads to heart attacks and death.

Or maybe that’s the fairy tale.
