A Bozeman representative says less pornography and a home cooked meal a day... could keep the budget woes away.

Rep. Tom Burnett advised his colleagues on how to prevent and curtail serious illnesses – including mental illness, obesity, and dementia in a 6-phase recommendation.

In an email dated February 1, the lawmaker outlined his plan which includes weekly church attendance, eating home cooked meals at the table – not on the couch – and abstaining from porn. Burnett closes his email, saying there is no guarantee these recommendations will forestall such illnesses, but he says there is research and proven experience out there that greatly reduces the odds.
