Amen, and Amen!!

NEW YORK - The nation's largest beverage distributors have agreed to halt nearly all soda sales to public schools, according to a deal announced Wednesday by the William J. Clinton Foundation.
Under the agreement, the companies have agreed to sell only water, unsweetened juice and low-fat milks to elementary and middle schools, said Jay Carson, a spokesman for former President Bill Clinton. Diet sodas would be sold only to high schools.
Cadbury Schweppes PLC, Coca-Cola Co., PepsiCo Inc. and the American Beverage Association have all signed onto the deal, Carson said, adding that the companies serve "the vast majority of schools."

That's great!!! My lunch in middle school subsisted of Dr. Peppers and Funyuns. YUCK!!!!!!!!!!
I was just wondering how I would have made it through high school without Dr. Pepper. I would probably have had to stash them in my locker!
do you remember how much water i drank in high school. so much so that my bottles were called "jana water." i wish i drank that much now. drinking DP would have made me even more ADD than i was. :)s
Hee hee! I've gone through periods of drinking a lot of water, and the only difference I noticed was that I had to pee a lot more. Being pregnant has broken my DP love, though. The cherry flavor is really prominent to me now. Now it's All Lemonade, All the Time!
Now if we can get this in every school, that's step two. Alice Waters for President!
