The 1950's was dubbed the Age of Anxiety and the 20 oughts have been called the Age of Obesity. Spice loving President elect Obama has taken a cue from the times and has named a hot and savory South Indian dish to be US Surgeon General.
Critics have complained that all previous SG's have been human beings but Barack has countered that all are welcomed under his big tent and will have a seat or in this case a platter at his administration's table.
Lamb Vindaloo, Obama offers, has the ability to reduce cholesterol, provide a relatively low calorie meal and improve conditions with sheepherders and the Asian Indian government. Critics claim that Chicken Tikka and Vegetarian Masala would have made better choices. Obama immediately named those two dishes to influential advisory posts to the Surgeon General.
