My apologies for keeping my posts brief this week - I defend my MSc a week from today so it is receiving my full attention for the next few days. I was in Montreal over the weekend and my girlfriend came across this very interesting article in the Gazette. A Canadian man is appealing his 2001 conviction for murdering his wife, saying that he accidentally crushed her when he fell on her. An American woman is using a similar defense as she is tried for the murder of her 2 year old nephew. As morbid obesity becomes increasingling prevalent, I expect we will continue to see it influence every aspect of society in ways that we have yet to even imagine.
