My feelings about obesity in this country are well documented, but I just can’t get behind the idea of restricting such personal freedoms. That said, if nothing else, Bloomberg deserves credit for drawing attention to the issue – whether it be from comedians or regular folks.

What do you think about the ban? And who had the better bit – Conan or Stewart?

[Side note: does the soda ban cover terrible ideas like this, thanks to Taco Bell?]
