Oh, man! The nanny-state busybodies just never stop. Now they want cigarette-style warning labels on soft drinks to let us know that overindulgence might lead to things like diabetes and decaying teeth. Well, duh. There are already so many labels warning about the dangers of so many things that few people pay any attention whatsoever to them. The silly things have been proliferating because of frivolous, money-grubbing lawsuits and, sometimes, just because of the fear of lawsuits. And since anything can be misused . . .
I once stopped to use the restroom at one of those highway rest stops, in Ohio, I think. Next to the urinals was a sign: "Please do not eat urinal cakes." Whether the manufacturer of those little disinfectant packets was just trying to head off legal trouble, or whether someone had actually once partaken and then sued, I did not care to think about.
