Big news from New York City today! The New York City Board of Health approved (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/14/nyregion/health-board-approves-bloombergs-soda-ban.html) Mayor Bloomberg's ban on the sale of large sodas and other sugary drinks greater than 16 ounces at restaurants, street carts and movie theaters.

Yet, many New Yorkers are unhappy and some other Americans are fearful that their cities may pass similar regulations.
