Surgeon general's prescription for Americans: Take a walk -

I wish our friend, Clayton Klein, Michigan's 'Walking Man,' might have seen this decree by the Surgeon General.
He'd have liked that very much. (Clayton died in February of this year, just two days short of his 96th birthday).
He cured an ailing back, and avoided surgery, when he began a regular daily walking program, which he kept up
for some 40 plus years. "Sedentary" was not in his vocabulary smile emoticon. He remains an inspiration to all of us, his fans
