The charitable interpretation: all that muscle mass in police is edging them up the BMI scale. I’m sympathetic, since even in my leanest and most athletic years I was thickset enough to be obese on the crude BMI scale. I guess that means I’m pulling the economist average up. But I’m willing to bet donuts play a more significant role.
