"That the City Manager be and hereby is requested to refer the matter of a ban on soda and sugar-sweetened beverages in restaurants to the Cambridge Public Health Department for a recommendation."

I am curious about how consistent you are in your expressed attitude, Jim. Do you also feel the same way about governmental crusades against tobacco, in favor of exercise, in provision of medicare, etc. ?
