You mean the nannies won't be happy with just a soda ban?

I'm shocked, shocked, to find that the statist neo-aristocrats are not satisfied with just one infringement.

One member, Bruce Vladeck, thinks limiting the sizes for movie theater popcorn should be considered.

“The popcorn isn’t a whole lot better than the soda,” Vladeck said.

Another board member thinks milk drinks should fall under the size limits.

“There are certainly milkshakes and milk-coffee beverages that have monstrous amounts of calories,” said board member Dr. Joel Forman.

See, plain rational health restrictions for the public good. Anyone thinking this will lead to full on broad bans and rationing is a paranoid.

Unless they're for it, which then it's just sensible moral hygiene.

Hey New Yorkers, if you didn't want to be ruled by paternalistic nannies then maybe you shouldn't have done things that morally offend them.

Or maybe you should toss out these petty tyrants that see fit to regulate your diets as if you were livestock.

But hey, at least they're not trying to ban sugar because it encourages sin, that would be crazy.

Remember a preacher ranting about the evils of too much sugar (or demon rum):: bad.
Gluttony, sloth, wrath, greed.
But a community organizer ranting about the ills of too much sugar? Well...
