New York City's limit on the size of sugary drinks was struck down by a judge Monday, the day before it was to take effect? Your thoughts?

  1. Good, the ban was a dumb idea
  2. Bad, the limits were a good idea

Or a study to compare cost of medical care by weight! If it were only the obese that racked up the bills, the hospital beds and doctor's offices would be full of fat people. I don't see that.

SayWhat.. that reminds me of the bear and the rabbit joke, the bear had just finished doing what bears do in the bushes and realized he had no TP, the bear asked the rabbit if his fur was soft and the rabbit said it was the softest.. wrong answer to a bear who is out of TP.

Earlybird...some extremests have already tried this. Singer Sheryl Crow was on Letterman a few years back bragging how she and her band & crew were limited to 1 square of paper on her tour buses to wipe theire butts. She wanted to set an example for her fans that they could save a tree by using less toilet paper. I'm not sure how long her vigil lasted though.

The limit on soft drinks,just another example of liberal,arrogant stupidity! Like telling your kids they can only have mini cookies, so they eat 10 instead of 2 regular size.Give me a break! Same thing with gun control, the crazies will still get as much fire power as they want, no law will stop these people, only law abiding people obey laws!!! Check out speed limits!

I don't believe there is really a person, who comments as MHW,it has to be someone at the MDN, just trying to get people fired up. Because no one person could possibly be that STUPID!!!!
