Carbo-Man Vindicated

Although I'm not the trencherman I used to be, I am and shall remain a carbo-man. So it was with pleasure that I read this morning Dennis Mangan's documented exposure of that tort on the gastrointestinal system known as the Atkins diet.

I say unto you: What doth it profit a man to lose a few pounds, but gain colo-rectal cancer?

Is there no end to the anti-carbohydrate madness? (Where is Susan Powter now when we need her to stop the madness!) Recently, prowling around Borders Bookstore I came across a book entitled The No Grain Diet. It should have been called the No Brain Diet.
