It's a good thing we have angels in the form of King Bloomberg to look out for us.

And stop with the emoticon. I quickly lose all respect for posters that go that route.

MB will be cursed by the new moms who have to carry the stroller in one hand and the baby in the other, and those elderly who cannot climb the stairs in future nyc living. Honestly I think this is an anti-civilization act.

He should ban those excessive entertainment sources--the screens especially and enforce some compulsory 30+ physical activity for those citizens who has a bmi over 28.

well, I live on the 4th floor of a walk up for the last 25 years. so climbing stairs is just something I do without thinking, I actually dont mind it at all.

I also work in a 2 story building and walk up and down the stairs in my office a lot during the course of the day as well.


I do think the Mayor at this point is completely out of his mind with this, but he has already poked his nose into way to many things that he should not have. But soon November will come and he will be gone., and good riddance.

and he also should have not had a third term.
