Don't you love how The Record virtually ignored an obese Governor Christie's out-of-control eating since he took office in January 2010, and now is asking him to "defend" and "explain" his weight-loss surgery?
What does it take for morons like political columnist Charles Stile to understand Christie chose life over a certain early death, if he kept up his uncontrolled gorging (A-1).
It's telling that the New York Post, not any New Jersey media, broke the story about Christie's "secret" lap-band surgery.
Diet and disease
Stile and a couple of the editors at the Woodland Park daily, Deirdre Sykes and Tim Nostrand, should spend some time on a hospital cardiac ward and ask doctors about the relationship between diet and disease.
The Record's last food editor, Susan Leigh Sherrill, promoted recipes using butter, cream, bacon and other unhealthy food every chance she got.
Just look at the Mother's Day recipe on the Better Living cover today (BL-1 and BL-2), calling for 2 cups of heavy cream, 1 cup of sweetened whipped cream
and 10 tablespoons plus a half-cup of butter.
Talk about killing your mother with kindness.
Oppose his policies
The GOP bully's conservative policies are still deplorable, but the media, including The Record's Sykes, Nostrand and Editor Marty Gottlieb, should cheer Christie's decision, not ask him to defend it.
And Christie isn't out of danger, if he continues eating a diet heavy in red meat and pizza, even though he'll be consuming smaller quantities.
