Living here makes you less healthy and more fat:
Millions of Latinos come to America looking for jobs and educations, but remaining here seems to be bad for their health.
The longer Latinos are here, the more likely they are to become obese, to develop diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. And Latinos born here have even higher rates of those illnesses, a new government report shows.
I always thought it was true, and have anecdotal knowledge that tells me that as much as certain types of Latino foods are villified by the mainstream as being unhealthy, people back in the home countries eat a lot better than Latino immigrants in the United States. Sure, tacos and tortas aren’t the best foods available, but they sure as hell beat McDonalds’ hamburgers and Pizza Hut.
The San Francisco Chronicle talks today about California senator Dianne Feinstein’s beef with the current guest worker bill:
“I do not believe you can have a guest worker come for three years, renew it for another three years, bring their family, settle in, put children in schools, and then they’re going to turn around and go back at the end of six years,” Feinstein said. “It doesn’t happen. They disappear. And that’s the problem. That’s the rub. That’s the magnet.”
So Feinstein is splitting with her party, and wants immigrants to truly be “guests”…meaning they’ll leave forever at some point.

Hombres: put down your wallets. If you were planning to spend your money on March’s Playboy magazine in the hopes of seeing Jessica Alba in her birthday suit, I have bad news for you. She’s not naked. And Jessica herself is pretty pissed off that your dirty mind thought she was naked inside the issue. So angry is the Sin City star that she is threatning to sue Playboy for using her image for commercial purposes without her consent and causing “immeasurable harm” to her reputation and career. Alba insists that the men’s mag got her bikini clad cover shot, which actually is a promo pic, through some underhanded methods and that she never agreed to be their cover girl.
