    Boston and Chicago are also considering some sort of transfat ban too.
    The entire country of Norway has a trans-fat ban in their restaurants.
    So what's wrong with NYC once again being a table-setter and banning transfats? The industries its going to hurt most are fast food and donuts (Dunkin' Donuts/Krispie Kreame)

    During the commercial break during ER reruns. It's either that or The View.

    This is stupid, paternalistic crap. (Although alcohol CAN have detrimental affects on others viz the stupid/dangerous behaviors it contributes to, whereas trans fat ONLY affects the consumer).

    By the way, the logic, or lack thereof, in the options and their order in that poll caused me to have a Grand Mal seizure.

    I though "Just Crazy" applied to the original poster.

    More Bloomberg lib "Daddy knows better than you" horseshit.

    Next time I have a cigar in my hand, I want the Mayor to be walking by.

    If you want to go to an extreme, trans fat consumption affects everyone, since it causes health problems and, ergo, boosts health insurance premiums, co-pays, etc.

    Still, it's a dumb-ass law. Yes, dooley, foods still can be enjoyable without trans fats. Why not let the customer decide if that's the route he wants to go, though?
