The Week Contest
This week’s question: A private health clinic in California has begun charging customers $8,000 to have half a gallon of blood plasma from teenagers and young adults pumped into their veins, which it claims can help defeat the aging process. Please come up with a marketing slogan the clinic could use for this unproven treatment.
Last week’s contest: A new law in France gives workers the “right to disconnect” from work email when they are out of the office, so that they can better maintain their work-life balance. If a similar bill were introduced in the U.S., what catchy name could lawmakers give the legislation?
THE WINNER: The Civil Nights Act Serena Meyer, New York City
SECOND PLACE: The E-mancipation Proclamation Joe Whitham, Goleta, Calif.
THIRD PLACE: The Freedom From Information Act Suzanne Brooks, Quechee, Vt.
