[Editor's note: today, we unveil a new feature at BlueOregon. The category "elsewhere" will be used to point readers to other blogs that are talking about the kinds of things you might find on BlueOregon. Enjoy!]
Over at his blog, Eric Carlson points the way to a study about obesity and what Oregon is doing about it. You see, here in Oregon, we're the 19th most obese state, with 21% of all adults - and it's spreading to our kids.
Eric's got a round-up of various legislative proposals, including measures to bar vending machines in schools, to create a statewide P.E. requirement, etc.
Check it out.
