Prizes for Babies

In Russia's central province on Wednesday, couples were encouraged to skip work and help boost the country's birth rate. *wink, wink, nudge, nudge* Exactly nine months from then on June 12, prizes such as an apartment will be issued to women who give birth.

Win a prize? What a wonderful reason for having a child! Hm... I'm reminded vaguely of 1984's concept of service to your country....
