I left Tacoma back in 1993 to go to college. Last week I came back for the first time to visit family.
Tacoma, what happened? You have become the fattest city I have ever seen. Every part of town I visited was full of obese men, women and even children. I rarely saw a normal-sized individual.
How can you thrive as a city if the majority of people are terribly out of shape? Stop blaming the government and take a good look in the mirror. You can’t expect to rebuild Tacoma’s economy if the majority of the city is overweight and out of breath.
