It is indeed. We take to heart those tut-tutting Metro bus-side ads asking us, quite reasonably, if we would really choose to pour 10 packets of sugar into a glass - the equivalent of what we do when we drink a non-diet "soft drink." But cities shouldn't punitively tax those drinks, or ban the Big Gulps as New York has.

No on "H"--yes, no on "H."

What does "H" stand for?

horrific, horrendous, hideous, hogwash

Vikki Martinez now says she will vote against "H.'

Great job, old Vik, after approving the squandering of $100,00+ on an absolutely idiotic proposal.

Your vote for this will cost you in your running for Mare (Whoops--Mayor) of El Monte in 2015;
as will your voting against rehiring the 14
stalwarts at the Aquatic Center.

You have lost your campaign already, dumbo(a).
