New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg wants to trim waistlines by expanding the Big Apple’s upcoming ban on big soft drinks.

And Bloomberg thinks all of New York state should follow his lead to better society. "Kids, once they get obese, they will be obese as adults.

Yes but what about all the accidents caused by New Yorkers speeding across the bridge to Long Island for a Big Gulp, mayor? [Source]
