The Vulture interviewer asked Fox what he would think if Sam brought home Taylor for a family dinner. His reply: He wouldn't know who she was, but he’d figure it out when he heard the hit breakup song on the radio. “‘Sam, You Piece of ... ’  Oh, that was the girl you brought home!

New York v. Los Angeles

A new nugget to add to that “which is better, Los Angeles or New York” debate that you have with your West Coast friends: In a study released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control this week, researchers found that New York appears to be more effective than its Pacific Coast counterpart at reducing childhood obesity for low-income preschoolers.

The researchers compared obesity rates among poor children from 2003 to 2011. In New York the rates dipped from about 19 percent to 16 percent, while in LA they rose from 17 percent to 21 percent, before dropping to 20 percent.

Public health officials came up with a few explanations for the difference: In New York people usually walk or take mass transit, while LA tends to be car-based. New York started early promoting exercise as part of its government program for low income women and infants. And in the Los Angeles study there were more Mexican-American children, for whom obesity is more common than for black and white children.
