How do we know it's coffee that is the problem? Maybe it's cranberries, or apples, or water, or breathing urban air, or even worse, bicycling or jogging while breathing urban air?
If there was a vote on banning coffee, would the "anti-coffee coalition" accept the people's decision or are the facts demanding of some kind of benevolent dictatorship that will take care of our health for us? If the people ban wheat germ and over-the-counter nutritional supplements, would the "anti-coffee coalition" accept that?

I for one am tired of always being reactionary, and playing catch-up. Let's take the initiative, get ahead of the curve and force positive, progressive change. How do we accomplish this? By banning coffee. <many snips> Dan McGrath Longfellow REMINDERS: 1. Be civil! Please read the NEW RULES at http://www.e-democracy.org/rules.
