I hate to have to tell you this, but while we wait none-too-patiently for bird flu, a new disease has struck America, the news brought to us by Dr. Dennis Quaid: "Manorexia."

For those who doubt his diagnostic perspicacity, recall that the more than fashionably thin thespian did fully inhabit the role of Doc Holliday in Wyatt Earp.

Quaid, natch, "is coming forward and talking about the problem so other men will get help." Please do.
