Should Restaurants Serve the Obese?

Posted February 6, 2008

On the Siteseeing segment yesterday, we reported an Associated Press story about a new bill Mississippi legislators are considering.  It would prohibit restaurants from serving obese customers.

The AP reported:

The bill had no specifics about how obesity would be defined, or how restaurants were supposed to determine if a customer was obese.

Well, not quite.  An English professor at N.C. State University sent me a link to the bill itself, and it does explain how the state would define obesity.  Here's the link.
