I really don't blame Bloomberg and tell you why. Many New Yorkers put him in that position to begin with, and when good old election time rolls around, what do they do? Put him right back and then moan about and protest what he does. That is the problem here, not the banning of huge soft drinks for their "protection."

Remember when they regulated the size of the toilet tanks in order to conserve water? The toilets wouldn't flush correctly with that small volume of water so people started flushing their toilets two and three times and ended up using even more water than before.
People will figure out ways around this. They always do.
