Where the fat things are.
I see that West Virginia is importing Dance Dance Revolution into Public Schools.

They could save some money and just make the kids run around in circles while screaming like I remember the first 10 years of my life. But hey, anything to get the fat little kids moving. Other states should consider similar programs, such as these ones:

Obesity, states with higher than national average of 21% by percent prevalence. The five states with the lowest rates are: Connecticut 17%, Rhode Island 17%, Vermont 17%, Massachusetts 16%, and Colorado at 14%.
