I had not followed this issue too closely, but 19 or 20 states have passed bi-partisan legislation that requires schools to test all students for BMI (Body Mass Index), and send home what are called "Fat Letters" to the parents of kids even kindergardeners who's BMI exceeds very narrow standards.

I'm posting here because it isn't so much political as it is moral, and if you're interested in helping to elevate the visibility of this issue, check out this KickStarter page.

I'm all for reducing childhood obesity, but not by shaming kids and their parents, and I'm gonna make a small contribution.
