L.A. Tries to Ban Soda Vending Machines From City Parks, Libraries

“The highly politicized crackdown on America’s fat people hits Los Angeles today, with a motion from L.A. City Councilman Mitchell Englander to ban all soda vending machines on city-owned property.

Englander, a physically fit frat-bro type who is clearly trying to one-up New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his proposed ban on extra-large sodas, warns in his motion that… sugary drinks can “affect young people both mentally and physically” — even cause them “to be violent against peers and in dating relationships.”
