Knock them if you wish.Those "Fat" people lost family members in a very gruesome way.Most of the people on site were citizens of Joplin.They lost everything they ever had.But still had enough compassion to help someone else who suffered loss in epic proportions.

Some of these "Fat" people live in a make shift tent city outside Joplin.They have nothing at all.Their Christmas and thanksgiving in 2010 was spent in their homes with festivities and family,Christmas tree's etc.

This year they spent the holiday's mourning the deaths of relatives and children as well as friends.They have no job because the F5 took the weekly pay check when a large part of the commercial properties were reduced to rubble.I have met many heavy set people who had children killed.Several chunky kids that had their father sucked out of their home and found pieces of them for several blocks.A 400 pound man was sucked out of St. Johns hostpital and was thrown an 1/8 mile to his death on a basketball court.

I may be overreacting as usual but your question pi**es me off.Those "Fat" people hold a special place in my heart because of what I seen in their eyes after this storm.Many people were here helping those "fat" people from all over the U.S.

"Fat" or not.,when someone has lost everything and still has the compassion and heart to help other people in their community pick themselves up while ignoring their own wants and wishes.,.,well that to me entitles them to a little more respect than the question that was asked.

Thank you - "RM"!
I'm going to try and watch it!
(Did the "make-up" artists, make you any better looking -
Or, like myself - they figured it was a hopeless, futile, endeavor?!!)

RM...

Just wanted to say 'thanks' to you and your crew, and to everyone else that has done so much to help out down there. I'm not a big fan of the show, but if it's helping out the people down there, awesome.

I was in the Twin Cities on business for several days during the time the tornado hit. One freak twister hit Minneapolis too. I'm from NW WI, tip of Lake Superior, we don't get weather like that. We are lucky. And as a result we really can't imagine the destruction that took place in Joplin. TV doesn't do it justice.

Once again, congrats and thank you's to you, your crew, and every other person, volunteer, and resident that is helping to rebuild. It's a long road, but with that kind of attitude, it'll hopefully be a road leading back to 'normal'.

And to the other poster...

'Fat people'? Really? That's the best comment you can make about the life destroying events these folks went through?
