I was a little surprised by Richard Simmons feelings about resturaunts reducing serving sizes. He was on one of the news shows the other day calling overeating a (gasp) personal choice.
You should not be surprised. You should have expected him to say that. These odd stories in the news about freaks and their lawyers suing over food are not the norm and they don't represent the mindset of the regular person.
There are a lot of people who make fun of Richard Simmons, but I've always felt that he's one of the "good guys," and he's ALWAYS been all about personal freedoms and responsibilities. He's someone who's never judgemental towards people who are tremendously overweight, but very supportive towards their getting to a better lifestyle.
He's inspirational, although quite corny, but he's a good guy, and he's really helped a lot of people, because he really does care about them.
