One other thing I should've blogged about
last week but just got too damned busy: I got an email from someone at the American Progress think tank alerting me to a blog post by one of their senior (jolly good) fellows, Jeanne Lambrew, on their ThinkProgress blog
. She's proposing a greater focus on wellness by the formation of a social-security-like organization called the Wellness Trust that will, well, give financial incentives for people to do the stuff that they would do if they really cared about their own health. I like the fact that people are thinking about this stuff, but if "If you don't get off the couch and exercise and stop eating McDonalds 5 times a day you're going to die a horrible death
" doesn't work, I don't know why "If you get off the couch and exercise and stop eating McDonalds 5 times a day I'll give you a dollar
" would work.
