"Chubby kids - get inside, play video games and get some exercise!"

West Virginia has gotten real tough on childhood obesity. Within the next 3 years 753 public middle schools will get the video game "Dance Dance Revolution". In hopes of making them move around to get some exercise. What does this cost? $740 for the console, two dance pads and software. Somebody in Virginia obviously needs to do a Costco run because they’re getting ripped off. Better yet, make the kids run over there and get some exercise. Actually thinking of it, they might come back with a crate of Twinkies instead.
