Nanny Mayor Now Targets Elevators

by Jerry Bader

So, is Bloomberg the ultimate Nanny Liberal, or is he just nuts? At least at this point he's simply "pushing" people to take the stairs. When that has zero impact, what does he do then? Start enforcing this for 100 story buildings? Yes, obesity is a legitimate problem. No, you don't fix it by thinking you're going to control every minute detail of people's lives. Gee Mayor, why not limit the number of miles people can use mass transit each week, forcing them to walk. It's probably risky including that line in this post.
