New Yorkers can now legally buy any size soda pop they want

Despite Elliot Spitzer's (D) and Anthony Weiner's (D) winning war on women, thanks to a judge, sanity of a sort will return to New York. 

A state appeals court judge ruled that New York's Mayor Michael Bloomberg's (whatever party accepts him) law prohibiting stores and restaurants from selling large (over 16 ounces) servings of pop "was an illegal overreach of executive power" and "violated the state principle of separation of powers," the First Department of the state Supreme Court's Appellate Division unanimously agreed.

Perhaps Bloomberg can now turn his attention to the extremely high cost of living in New York.  Or to the crumbling infrastructure.  Or help the victims of last fall's super storm Sandy. 

That's his job; regulating his constituent's caloric intake is not.
