After embarking on an initiative that would ban the sale of soft drinks larger than 16 ounces in New York City, Mayor Michael Bloomberg took time out of his busy schedule to issue a proclamation honoring the 75th National Donut Day at Madison Square Park, where the largest box of Entenmanns Donuts ever created was unveiled.
Its not like Im saying that donuts are good for you while Coke is not, Bloomberg explained. Both are foods that the average person ought to steer clear of if he can. However, donuts are one of the mainstays of the Citys police force. Under the terms of our contract with the police union we are barred from taking any action that would impede any officers access to them. Signing this proclamation is meant to build good will between the City and the Union. Besides, I like donuts.

You really ought to put SATIRE in the title when you post from this idiot site.
Mayor BloomingIdiotBerg, of NannY State, is a single-person target-rich environment.
Buy yourself a sense of humor.
“Semi-News/Semi-Satire” Wasn’t that a clue for you Blue?
Are you the person the saying “fell off a turnip truck” was penned for?
It’s OK for the mayor to use his bully pulpit to fight obesity. Sugar drinks are the low hanging fruit. One third of our added sugar and 24 pounds of our excess body weight come from these beverages.
He’s wrong to legislate it, and my bet is that this is nothing but posturing.
