Opening Arguments

A healthy revolt

Hey, a clash with the wellness fascists in which the plebes win:

Indiana University, the fourth-largest employer in the state, is backing off a key part of its new wellness program after a backlash from employees.

The school will no longer ask employees to fill out an online health risk assessment after more than 550 people—many anonymous—attached names to an online petition that said the plan would cause “widespread anger and disillusionment” among the IU work force.

Suppose those employees had some paranoid delusions about "invasion of privacy" or something? In addition to the "risk assessment," the plan also asks employees "to use no tobacco products and undergo tests of their blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol and body-mass index."
