  •  Raising awareness vs. regulation (0+ / 0-)

    If this was just about education and raising awareness, I wouldn't have a problem with it.  In fact, I would fully agree.  However, I thought the diary was pretty clear in coming out in favor of the New York "Giant Soda ban".

    my opinion is that bucket-sized soft drink portions (or towers of cloying coffee-like beverages) containing enough sugar to kill a cow have no good reason to exist, and many serious reasons not to.
    I interpreted that to mean that she was in favor of this law.  If that wasn't clear enough in the diary, she reiterated it in a comment.
    Did I miss something? Where did she say what YOU can or can't do when visiting New York?
    That being the case, she is advocated for a law that says I cannot buy a 32oz soft drink when I visit new york and that vendors cannot sell a 32oz cup of pop to me.
    Far as I know, Jan Sorenson is not Michael Bloomberg or the New York City Council, and did not make the laws.
    That is an odd statement to make.  The implication being that since she isn't in DIRECT control, then her opinion shouldn't matter to me?  If you believe that her opinion doesn't matter so I shouldn't bother responding, then why is she bothering to post on the internet?

    She is free to express an opinion and I am free to respectfully disagree with it.
