    In 1991 obesity was measured differently than it is today. This is classic case of not being aware of all facts at hand and falsely using statistics to create a point.

    FYI Matt, your use of “whomever” is a common example of grammatical “overcorrectness,” i.e., wrongness. “Whom” (and “whomever”) denote objects in a sentence or clause, never subjects. If you had said, “Whomever Gov. Manchin chooses…” that would be correct. If you’re not sure, it’s safer just to avoid “whom” words, since they’re no longer required except in very formal writing.

    I’m really not trying to be a dick or anything. I just wanted to point it out because errors like that can make people take your writing less seriously, even subconsciously.

    Le_Sacre: Thanks; I actually hate “whom” and tend to avoid it like the plague. I’m surprised I used it. But I would hope no one would take me less seriously for being overcorrect. I would feel very badly about that… (mistake intentional).
