Standing desks at the White House

The White House has announced that it will be installing standing desks. The coverage has focused on the expense ($700,000) as if this was some kind of a scandal, but it is worth noting that there are about  3,366 people employed full time at the White House.

Given the evidence of the negative health effects of sitting, perhaps the White House is setting a good example for other employers.
