The Assembly Health Committee is again considering the ban of all soft drinks in Los Angeles and perhaps all of the US.
Not only for health reasons of childhood and adolescent obesity but to save the planet from the tons of CO2 released as the cans and bottles are opened and enjoyed.
Champagne and beer are also being considered as a pollutant, but the $44,000,000,000 soft drinks industry is the main target of this probe.
One of the LA school board members said that she burst into tears when a soft drink commercial showed several penguins sharing a pop with the polar bears, "They're destroying their own habitat!", she sobbed.
Well, we can still all drink the cool-ade.
