If you watched Jay Leno last night you may have heard my name. Well, it’s my name but he was actually referring to my uncle of the same name. The “other” Shane Cultra happens to be our State Senator and he made a little statement that turned into International news. In a nutshell he said that we should take away the $2000 tax credit from parents that have obese children. It caused quite an uproar but at the same time drew attention to a very important cause. Obesity in this country. While it may have been a little extreme, he is absolutely correct that people need to take more responsibility for the health of their children. If we want to be obese we have that choice. Children do not.
A few months ago I was part of the Playboy mansion sickness joke on Leno as well. Between local tv, the Playboy mansion, this obesity thing, and a few AP stories I did interviews for, I think the Shane Cultra brand is really expanding. Not sure if it’s in a good way though. Head to the 4:40 mark if you want to get straight to it.
