NYC vs. The Super Big Gulp

I thought about writing up a little rant about the ridiculous ban on ginormous sodas that Bloomberg announced as his latest crusade in New York City, but then I watched Jon Stewart’s clip from The Daily Show the other night and I think he covered it pretty well… 😉

Really, it’s silly that this is even being proposed, although government has a nasty habit of regulating what some consider to be bad for people. Sure, I remember seeing the documentary years ago about a couple who would literally fill up a shopping cart with nothing but 2 & 3 liter bottles of soda once a week and they had horrible weight & diabetes problems … but what do you do??? If smoking is still legal, and drinking alcohol is still legal, then banning snack foods in certain quantities seems kind of like a moot point, now doesn’t it?
