I heard on the radio last week that Mayor Bloomberg is trying to prohibit eateries, etc. from offering super-sized sweet beverages for sale as they are not good for us. I mean really, if posting the calorie content for food and beverages at let say McDonald’s hasn’t gotten people to stop ordering Big Mac’s, large fries, and sweet tea/regular soda, I guess our Mayor has no other option but to step in and save us from ourselves.
What happened to freedom of choice? Oh wait, I believe that went out the window with the ban on smoking. I believe I mentioned in a prior post that once you allow one freedom of choice to be taken away from you (even if it might be in your best interest), it gets so much easier for others to be taken away too. Hmm, I wonder what he’ll try to take away next?
