Coca-Cola and Pepsi are changing the way they make the caramel colouring used in their drinks as a result of a California law that mandates drinks containing a certain level of carcinogens bear a cancer warning label.
The companies said the changes will be expanded nationally to streamline their manufacturing processes. The changes have already been made for drinks sold in California.
Coca-Cola and Pepsi account for almost 90% of the soda market, according to industry tracker Beverage Digest.
The American Beverage Association, which represents the broader industry, said its member companies will continue to use caramel colouring in certain products but that adjustments were made to meet California’s new standard.

These things are still around? I thought them replaced by … more, er, complicated looking devices. Possums, or Rabbits, or something. I remember the first time I saw one of these. We were looking at new-fangled home answering machines at Hecht’s. There, sitting on the glass counter were displayed a dozen or so, standing upright like toy soldiers. They weren’t turned on, lest they vibrate off the table, like one of those electric football game pieces I guess. Took me a minute. Stopped me in my tracks.
Despite the card calling it a “muscle relaxer,” which I guess it is, I recognized it for what it was.

Gloria Allred is targeting Rush Limbaugh in her latest publicity-seeking campaign.
Allred, whose clientele seems to only include women famous for sensational sexual situations, wants to prosecute Limbaugh for asking his audience what one would call a woman who seeks money for sex: “you’d call that a slut, right?”
“Mr. Limbaugh targeted his attack on a young law student who was simply exercised her free speech and her right to testify before congress on a very important issue to millions of American women and he vilified her. He defamed her and engaged in unwarranted, tasteless and exceptionally damaging attacks on her,” Allred told POLITICO Friday afternoon. “He needs to face the consequences of his conduct in every way that is meaningful.”
As I understand it, Fluke didn’t testify before congress, she spoke in a press conference before a few members of congress. Vastly different.
Allred seeks to prosecute Limbaugh under an anachronistic and sexist Florida law—

A neighbor has stalked Edna Geisler for two months. He lurks in her front yard, screeching at her constantly, even jumping out occasionally and attacking her when she dares wander outside alone.
“I’m afraid to go out of my house,” said Geisler, 69. “I have to go to the post office at 6 o’clock in the morning to avoid him.”
When she returned home with groceries recently, Geisler couldn’t get in her front door.
“I had to go next door to the neighbors and have him use a push broom to keep him away while I brought the groceries in,” Geisler said.
Her stalker is a large, mature, tom turkey who believes Geisler’s front yard in Commerce Township is his. Geisler said she calls him Godzilla.
