Don’t Touch my Sugary Drink

Just a day before it was to go into effect, New York City’s ban on large sugary drinks was invalidated by a New York State Supreme Court judge, The New York Times reported. The ruling blocks the city from enforcing the ban. After the ruling, Mayor Michael Bloomberg vowed to appeal. “I’ve got to defend my children, and yours, and do what’s right to save lives,” Bloomberg said. “Obesity kills. There’s no question it kills.” So, Bloomberg’s attempt at “portion control” was both “arbitrary and capricious.”

Clear winners and losers on this one.
