    I have no problem with banning it from schools or municipal facilities that cater to children, but in public/government workplaces where it is mostly adults? No, way over the top. I would love to see responsible adults be more responsible in their food choices (including the mayor) but it isn't up to the government to tell adults what they may and may not purchase...

    According to the House and Senate and President, yes it is. Don't believe me, ask any supporter of Obamacare.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    You think I care what they say? Perhaps Menino should lead by EXAMPLE! Look at HIS waistline... I consume sports drinks somewhat regularly and drink sweetened green tea on a regular basis. It isn't ENTIRELY about what one consumes, it is how much and overall activity... The mayor is WAY out in left field... so far out there, he is under the Citgo sign...

    This has to be one of the most useless, dumb and frankly ignorant things I've ever heard of a Mayor doing.
    why? if someone wants a soda, they can get it elsewhere.

    I'm just of the conviction that corn subsidies have traditionally had alot more to do with something other than environmentalism.

    Please. Republicans pander to the corn lobby just as much as Democrats. It has nothing to do with environmentalism.
