Over the past decade or so I noticed that people are getting taller. I once thought of myself as being slightly above average in height, but now I am looking up to almost everyone. Three of my granddaughters are taller than me, and I began wondering about my great grandchildren. Are we becoming a race of giants?

Many years ago I read a story entitled “The Incredible Shrinking Man.” Now I know how he felt.
