Cell Phone Addiction, Sugary Drinks, Nuns Behaving 'Badly' & Endorsements

Jun 8, 2012

What counts as a bad habit? And who should have the power to save us from one? That's a big part of our discussion today.

This week, addictions were all over the news. New Yorkers are facing a ban on sugary drinks, while California chefs repeal a foie gras ban. A Massachusetts teen is looking at a jail sentence for not being able to put down his cell phone.

Meanwhile, the rest of us can't stop using our cell phones in bed.

Later in the show, we'll talk about the Vatican's crackdown on a Connecticut nun who authored a controversial book on Christian sexuality and much-talked about remark by President Obama on pushups. Or was he talking about oral sex?
