The “Conversation With” article on Tuesday, about Carson Chow, a mathematician who studies obesity, misstated a statistic around which his work revolves. One in 3 Americans are obese — not merely overweight, a description that applies to 2 in 3 Americans.

Stop Press:

...that's 5 in 6

Correction:

...no, wait a sec' ...7 in 8...

Well, 206 million people can't be wrong, it's certainly popular!
