A Minor Proposal

How about this? Instead of forcing kids to play Dance Dance Revolution, when many of the children, who have been born without rhythm irrespective of their fitness, will be humiliated in front of their classmates, the kind folks in West Virginia give their kids reasonable weight loss goals in reasonable time frames with jobs in the mines waiting for those who fail to meet consecutive deadlines. I have always found fear to be a more effective motivator than distraction.

Conversely, though, I applaud these Mountaineers for their effort to create the exact opposite of Footloose.
