An infant too obese to insure? Only in America!

Saw this news item from the Denver Post, and I just HAD to comment. I mean, it's ridiculous! Seems a 4-month-old boy, who weighs a chubby 17 pounds but is otherwise healthy, was denied insurance coverage because, the insurance company says, he has a pre-existing condition: Obesity. Needless to say, his parents were confounded.
Any wonder our health-care system is so unhealthy? For more details, plus more of my take on this issue, please see my post at Examiner .com.
