NEW YORK -- New York City's crackdown on big, sugary sodas is staying on ice.
An appeals court ruled Tuesday that New York City's Board of Health exceeded its legal authority and acted unconstitutionally when it tried to put a size limit on soft drinks served in city restaurants.
The state Supreme Court Appellate Division panel upheld a lower court decision that had delayed the measure before it took effect in March.

Finally! A Bit of sanity...

You do it on making it more appealing to them than the alternative... they'll always find ways around laws and restrictions and peer pressure can be countered with selecting who you associate with. But if your opinion changes, who beats that?

Can you imagine? Can you choose?
One thing there's more room for, is humility. Can you answer the question whether we're the epitome of existence, or extensions of it? Whatever existence, god, holiness, the god particle, life, or whatever it is.
