Harvard audience cheers as scientist proposes “requiring people to exercise.” [Barton Hinkle, Reason]

Clearly he would be in favor of compulsory exercise in front of your TV every morning! I guess he never read 1984 or more likely he sees that, with people like him in charge of course, as the ideal society.

Does anyone know whether Hizzoner Bloomberg does any regular exercise, or what he or his family eats on a regular basis, or what shape he is in?

“When I say jump!, you say how high!” How the control freaks long for that.

Of course, it would be too hard to monitor compliance … absent re-education camps.

Richard’s comment above made me imagine Nanny Blooomberg on the TV, yelling at me:

‘Smith!’ screamed the shrewish voice from the telescreen. ’6079 Smith W.! Yes, you! Bend lower, please! You can do better than that. You’re not trying. Lower, please!
