    As a lefty, this is the kind of BS rule, that gives the left a bad name, as supporters of the nanny state.

    I think New York ought to ban the sale of cartons of cigarettes, limit pack sizes to 10, and ban multiple sales of packs for good measure.

    Well, I guess I never will, now.

    I refuse to patronize such an idiotic petty tyranny with my tourism dollars.
    So you will not visit the Empire State Building because you cannot bring your "Big Gulp", well join the rest of humanity no one can bring such items in the elevator. You may, however, buy something to drink on the main floor. Your excuse not to visit NYC is over some nutty proposal to limit the size of a soft drink that can be refilled as many times as you wish. This sounds like an excuse, maybe you are a little frightened to visit the big city, there is no shame in that. Do not despair I would be happy to show you around town and I know of many folks who would be happy to provide you with a "Big Gulp".

    So what I am offering is to meet you there and take you on a tour. Your tourism dollars will be well spent and Bloomberg will not see a cent of it. The people I know do not pay taxes and I travel the back roads of NYC so I do not even pay tolls. It would be a true DP adventure....

    I think it should be passed.

    Let'em pass the laws and let the rest of us see what the results are.

    If the results suck then the rest'll have more ammo in case this spreads.

    Bloomberg is just trying to go out with a bang.

    Once he's gone in 2014, the new Mayor will remove a lot of his stupid laws.
