‘Jelly bellies’ memo costs police chief his job

“Police Chief Paul Goward was tired of looking around his department and seeing blubber hanging over the belts of some of his officers. So he sent out a memo exhorting the “jelly bellies” to shape up. In the end, the department lost 190 pounds — all of them belonging to Goward. He was forced out as chief because some of his officers took offense at the memo.”

I am overweight. And if I had such a chief around, I would be very glad. This guy should not have lost his job. He should be given a medal instead.
