Alert the Media: Models getting thinner...

...while nation gets fatter.
As I was huffing and puffing on the treadmill today, on the "weight-loss" program, mind you, I saw a segment of the Today show where an 18 year-old model almost six feet tall and weighing 13o pounds (at the most) was not allowed on the Paris runways because her legs were "too fat".
I love this topic because me and my fat ass can safely vituperate against models who increasingly look like Auschwitz inmates from the comfort of our ever expanding girth. But really, what professional deformation makes the designers and fashion criminals think that these girls look good? They are sacks of bones. And we are not even talking about the psychological abuse.
The very lovely girl in question said that she ate so little (got to be 102 pounds) that she missed her period for a year and her hair was falling out in clumps. This is not pretty.
I think whoever is responsible for making a young girl a bulimic, anorexic, coke whore, chain smoking fucked up sack of bones should be sued and/or prosecuted and sent to jail. Parents, modeling agencies, designers, photographers, editors. Whoever.
