Just for the record, the NYC ban on large sodas has been struck down by the New York Supreme Court -- and it wasn't passed by "the same people." The soda ban was enacted by the city of New York, at the behest of Mayor Bloomberg, and the SAFE act was enacted at the state level. Mr. Bloomberg may have been all for it, but he wasn't responsible for passing it.

Let's try to keep things accurate, OK?
