    Is NYC next?

    Is NYC next?

    Banning super-sized sodas may be the spark that ignites the fire.

    From reader Max:

    A rare sight in midtown Manhattan …. They must be from some other part of New York State!

    Bloomberg is right. However, if he had any integrity, he would remind people that they have a choice between liberty and submission with benefits. Only a minority will ever enjoy both.

    So, did NYC also ban free refills? If not, what keeps a 16-ounce drink purchaser from getting one or more refills?

    As for the car in the photo, it’s definitely a NYC resident. Why? Look at the bumper dings in the close-up shot, which is a hallmark of the world of parallel parking.

      Nobody has banned anything. It will take the Board of Health most of a year to consider Bloomberg’s proposal and perhaps adopt it. But if it does so, the businesses it regulates will remain free to offer free refills, and nothing will stop anyone from getting them. The point is that many people won’t bother.
