This is reference to the Mayor who's trying to ban sugary drinks, etc.  Why not ban alcohol? It does more harm than sugar.  Then regarding the obeisty issue; if schools had recess & gym like I had as a child back in the 60's less kids would be obese.

I agree with the caller who said a baby's head smells the sweetest.  I remember inhaling the scent of my 3 babies' fluffy heads endlessly.  I must have looked like a Labrador Retriever!  Wish I could've bottle that scent forever.  Now the smell of a teenage son who marinates himself in Axe, or in the car after hockey practice...not so much.

About banning sugary drinks - I have a 76 yr old sister-in-law who thru bad choices has allowed her kids to leave her homeless & penniless.  When I contacted Dept. Human Services, they talked to her & said she was of sound mind & free to make her own choices & there was nothing they could do. Guess I need to convince her to buy a 32 oz. drink, then the state will step in.

Today soft drinks, tommorow religion. If we don't speak up next the government will be telling us who we can worship, and I don't know about you, but I am going to continue praising God, and drinking soda..

There are problems with making laws regarding diet. First, "healthy whole grains" are not healthy for a good percent of us, but I'm sure they won't be taxed. Meats are a mixed bag...some good, some bad, but I'm sure they will be taxes across the board. And bottom line, people will die before letting someone tell them how to eat. We've come way too far already with the "nanny state". Also, when they promise the taxes will go a certain place, we might want to look back to the 2 or 3% of the tobacco taxes and restitutions that actually went where the government said they would. The rest just disappeared.
