The "Habit Heroes" exhibit at Disney's Epcot has been "temporarily" shut down.
Congratulations and profound gratitude is owed all the organizations and individuals who contacted Disney and Blue Cross Blue Shield, and to Disney for hearing them.

You’re not to blame.” And then we go and make an exception for fat people"
