If I could give an award for the most bewildering headline in recent months, it would be the WSJ story about Pepsi and the shrinking cola market. Let me get this straight. PepsiCo is criticized for focusing on healthy foods?
Lately there has been a lot of hoopla in the Big Apple about the federal food stamp program, now officially known by the snappy acronym SNAP (the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). Everybody, it seems, has an opinion.
Apparently, the public has spoken, and people support banning the use of food stamps to buy soda. But I wonder if it would be different though if the ban were to be extended to all citizens, and not just those on the welfare end?
