West Virginia to Kids: Play Some DDR, Fatties

Sometimes it pays to be a bit soft around the edges. Due to childhood obesity problems in West Virginia, every public school in the state is getting a Dance Dance Revolution machine. Every school.

What happened to gym class? Aren't people supposed to exercise there? I guess WV has just given up on gym and let the kids have what they want. In my day, we stayed skinny by walking five miles through a blizzard to school, and it was uphill both ways! Kids today don't know the meaning of hard work, I'll tells ya.
