Have I been in Sacramento too long? These don't seem like the craziest of crazy legislative proposals - and that one about not smoking in cars with kids - wasn't that so last session?
And I think having restaurants disclose calorie and fat contents on the menu is a fine idea (at least at fast food places of a certain size - getting calorie counts calculated can be pricey) - one that makes a lot more sense than banning transfats or any particular culprit-of-the-week foodstuff.
It's like that damn MickeyD's $2mil cup of coffee lawsuit award anecdote: all of these ideas are presented in a way that belies the frequently reasonable motivations behind them. Except of course for bills like that one letting 14 year olds vote. That was stupid.
