New York City's proposed ban on super-sized sodas is an insufferable “nanny state overreach.” But Idaho's ban on Five Wives vodka could be worse, says Wayne Hoffman, executive director of the Idaho Freedom Foundation, a conservative lobbying group. Idaho's state-run liquor dispensary banned the Utah-produced Five Wives brand, saying its references to polygamy could offend Mormons. Writes Hoffman, in his weekly column: “Neither state law nor the regulations of the liquor division provide a mechanism for the director to ban the sale of a product based on perceived offensiveness. And nowhere in state law or state regulations are the standards for what might be deemed offensive or how that determination might be made”/Kevin Richert, Statesman (w/full column by Wayne Hoffman of Idaho Freedom Foundation).

Question: Which ban do you consider worse — Idaho's ban on Five Wives Vodka? Or New York's ban on super-sized sodas?
