I've never liked Chris Webber
He's a whiner and a choker. I've always felt the Sacramento Kings had serious Ewing Theory potential - especially a few years ago when they also had Peja, Bibby, Vlade, Bobby Jackson, and Hedo Turkolu. They'd be able to hang in games even without Webber, and Webber was always a liability down the stretch.

When I first saw Webber's face splashed on ESPN today and the headline said he was headed to Philly, I was like oh crap, they traded AI. This feeling lasted for longer than it should've because the page wouldn't load ( is bloated and my comp sucks).. but when I finally got to the article and realized they weren't talking about who the 76ers traded, I knew it couldn't be Iverson. I still read intently, wondering which young gun(s) they traded -- Korver, Dalembert, or Igudala. Those guys have shown some real talent this season, given AI some help on offense.. And the 6ers didn't give any of them up! I've never liked Chris Webber, but it's hard not to like this trade if you're a Philadelphia fan. The Sixers can use Webber to take punishment away from Iverson during the game, and AI or Korver can take the last second shots.

This Sixers team has a great chance to win the Atlantic and take a series or two in the playoffs.

Fast Food and No Sidewalks
Six out of 10 Americans are obese, so there's plenty to go around. Lower-income urban areas have disproportionately high numbers of fast food outlets and disproportionately low numbers of grocery stores selling fresh foods. Fresh food is more expensive because of yield, transport, and storage costs. But in the middle-class suburbs, ppl usually just drive and in many places there aren't even sidewalks. Not exercising is bad for your health, but if you go for a walk and get nailed by a car, that's even worse. A poor urban person is more likely to be obese than a middle-class suburban person, but, socioeconomics being equal, people are more likely to be obese in the suburbs.
