Lets get the bias out of the way up front. I despise New York. I hate their elitism, the crowding, the self-centeredness and self-importance.

With that said, I think New York managed to top itself with their ban on soda over 16 oz in most venues.
Even funnier are the comments people are making about it to defend it on left wing trash rags like the Huffington Post.

Even better are the tools bringing up nonsense like, "Well I like," (insert random nasty-tasting beverage here) "and people should drink more of that."
But best of all; alcohol can still be served in larger quantities.

I hope someone sues that city into bankruptcy. Now that would be New York related news to bring a smile to my face.
