"I'm just happy to see that Bloomberg is term limited."

when Bloomberg was first elected, NY governors were limited to TWO terms. He is now in his THIRD term. Didn't like the law, so had it changed to suit himself.

The size of soft drinks? Give me a break! This editorial, IMO was meant to pander to the Far Right. Some easy fat to chew on. This concept is SO FAR Left that to me it is somewhere out in the Pacific. I usually try to give credit & value differing opinions, however IMO, only a nut would try to defend this. This is America.

Now to me something far more worthy of debate from up there is "Stop & Frisk". Again, this is America.

After reading this piece, I thought it was a LTE mistakenly put where the paper's editorials go. It also reminded me of the editorials that the late Jim Webb wrote in his Webb Weekly. It used to be that, agree with them or not, the SG editorials were consistently well written and laid out a point of view thoughtfully and in a reader friendly fashion. That is still true when the topic is a local issue. There must be several people who write editorials and the quality of writing varies widely.
