    It makes me want to buy a small cup and go back for refills.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    It's funny you would mention that, because that was my first thought as well. I know my boyfriend always gets a small drink at fast food places because he knows he can just go up and get more. Maybe they'll get rid of soda fountains next...?

    I think banning large sodas is both stupid and evil. Stupid, because as is mentioned, people can always get refills. Evil, because I don't like legislating eating habits. I'm all for labels, warnings, etc, but not for the government legislating what is good or bad to eat or drink.

    I mean, this is the same government that gave us the food pyramid and has soy down as heart healthy. Do we really want to set a precedent (granted, state gov not fed gov, but still) that any government can outlaw food?

    MmmmHmmm. Then bacon, because everyone knows that bacon is bad for you.

    My question is... when will WATER be cheaper than water + crappy ingredients
    And no, I don't mean tap water that tastes like it came from a public swimming pool.

    Gotta agree with the rest. You aren't going to get people to eat smarter by forcing them to do it. It comes down to education, something we are more than willing to yank money from at any point in time, rather than from politicians' salaries...

    Definitely not a step in the right direction. People need to learn to be responsible for themselves, it's really that simple.

    This is terrible. I mean, I agree that soda is super bad for you, and people shouldn't be drinking mass quantities of it, but this is absolutely not an issue for legislation. If they start taking stuff like this away, half the stuff we love is next. Butter. Bacon. Heavy Whipping Cream. Fatty cuts of meat (say hello to boneless skinless chicken breast only!). Ugh. Bloomberg thinks the job of the government is to micromanage every aspect of the filthy unwashed masses' lives. Irritating.
