...probably to some sort of child-compression technology mandated by a "unified and non-partisan" government in order to "equalize the playing field" for premature babies from protected racial classes that are disparately impacted in their overall length performance.

There are two Americas - one in which rich white infants are long, and then later, one in which there is the NBA.
