The Nanny State Channels Jeopardy
In San Francisco City Hall, cheesy new signage has been installed in front of all of the elevators in the building, guilt-tripping people for not being healthy and taking the stairs instead.
The signmaker also seems to have a thing for Alex Trebek and Ken Jennings, the Salt Lake City champion with 74 straight "Jeopardy" victories, who rather ungratefully trashed the show and its host after winning $2.5 million, according to a Fox News article (click here). Maybe they forced him to walk up the stairs at the TV studio instead of taking the elevator. (Update: According to commenter Jacquelynne, I've been punked. The Jennings dis of Trebek was a "satire.")
