I've tried warning wrong-headed social conservatives--for DECADES--that their nanny-state antics would lead to this kind of nonsense. Most still believe the govt. has the right to (and should) tell us what we can and can't consume.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is planning to ban the sale of large sugary drinks known to most Americans as big gulps and smaller drinks such as Snapples. Why the need for the ban? To save people from themselves combat obesity of course.

The proposed first-in-the-nation ban would impose a 16-ounce limit on the size of sweetened drinks sold at restaurants, movie theaters, sports venues and street carts. It would apply to bottled drinks as well as fountain sodas.

The ban, which could take effect as soon as March, wouldn't apply to diet...
