Soda pop

I enjoyed this post from Trailnet’s blog about taxing soda.  Except where I come from, we call it pop.  I particularly liked this bit:

“So in essence, the government is paying to make soda cheap and then taxing soda to raise money to solve the problems that soda contributes to, such as rampant obesity and type II diabetes. There’s a lesson in unintended consequences somewhere in there…”

Maybe we can settle this thing once and for all by calling these beverages what they are: corn syrup laden obesity delivery drinks.

    Hey Melissa – Finally got some time to go thru your blog – it’s a riot. Enjoying it very much.

    For a great “green” experience, come to Burlington Oct. 10 for the Aldo Leopold Renewable Energy Fair. You can even talk to a representative from Com. Action Weatherization and learn about insulating a home.
