NYC's big-soda ban: What do you think?

There’s lots of buzz about New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s call to put the kibosh on super-size sodas. His proposal to prohibit the sale of enormous servings of sugary soft drinks in the city’s food-service establishments is meant to help whittle New Yorkers’ waistlines. (The limit would be 16 ounces for bottled beverages and fountain drinks.)

But the big-soda ban, which could be in place by next March, has raised lots of questions about the government’s role in regulating personal food choices. Does the city government have any business telling people how big their Cokes can be? Shouldn't people be allowed to buy — and sell — whatever size sodas they choose?
