Morons of the Day: Vietnamese Health Ministry

Just like a bunch of commies to let public outrage get in the way of good policy...  wait, what?:

Faced with mounting public criticism, Vietnam's Health Ministry suspended a widely ridiculed plan to ban short, thin and small-chested drivers.

The ministry had recommended that people whose chests measure less than 28 inches be prohibited from driving motorbikes — as well as those who are too short (less than 4 -foot-8 [inches]) or too thin (less than 88 pounds).

When the media revealed the plan this week, it prompted disbelief and scorn among members of the public, who envisioned the police pulling over female drivers to measure their breasts.

As Glenn would say, that's a feature, not a bug.
