Biggest Headline of 2008: Calorie Counts For All to See

In April, New York City began requiring any restaurant chain with at least 15 outlets across the country to post the calorie counts of food on its menus. The goal is to help curb obesity by making diners more aware of what they are eating. Philadelphia followed suit, and the state of California passed similar legislation in September. There's also a plan to reintroduce legislation in Congress to require national chains to publish their nutritional info. Do you think this is a good idea? Would you want to see calorie counts in your city?
