p.s. But ... BUT ... Bloomberg has urged laws to outlaw large soda drinks!
On March 12, the ban will go into effect at city restaurants, movie theaters, delis, mobile food carts, stadiums, arenas and other businesses given grades by the city’s Department of Health.
http://rt.com/usa/nyc-graduates-unable-to-read-011/New York City’s literacy rates are on the decline: nearly 80 percent of high school graduates lack basic skills like reading, writing and math and are required to relearn them before qualifying for community college.During his most recent State of the City address, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg hyped about the large investment the city has made on education – a multi-billion dollar investment that seems to have done little to help the city’s teens.
