Picked up a 20 oz. bottle of Pepsi that was lying on the ground, and read the ingredients. It has 69 grams of sugar!! Why aren’t these companies being sued for selling drinks to the public that endanger public health — would be my question. 69 grams of sugar equals 17 teaspoons in just 20 oz. of liquid. Almost a teaspoon for every ounce.
I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up.
