#SF, who's pouring in all this money to try to stop Prop V? Yup, it's the American Beverage Association, again, just like in Berkeley.

They're a trade organization made up of the world’s largest beverage companies and businesses that sell their products. Based in DC not #SF.

...then you work with them to make sure you aren't screwing up the region that person knows best & has turned a positive spotlight on.

Glad to have spent my Friday evening watching The Big Lebowski. Just sorry we didn't have any half & half. (Or vodka, come to think of it.)

The fliers are pretty predictable too; cue rugged, ethnic-but-not-too-brown man in a greengrocer's apron with tray of mangos.

Prop V adds a 1 cent per oz tax on initial distribution within #SF of sugar-sweetened beverages. It is not a "grocery tax", it's a soda tax.

When glossy anti-Prop V fliers hit my mailbox here in #SF I knew some corporation feared lowered profits. Yep; can't tell me soda=groceries.

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
