That’s not the headline, of course. The headline in the New York Times is, “F.D.A. Says It May Ban Alcoholic Drinks With Caffeine.” When I read it, I thought, “Oh, no. The FDA is about to ban rum and coke.” But have no fear: they’re not going to ban that drink, probably because they can’t stop the after-market. They just want to take away the convenience that comes from the pre-mix.

Isn’t it grand to have the FDA, spurred on by such busybodies as Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, looking out for us?
