Out of the Blue

Today the actual Expo part of E3 begins... are there more announcements still to be revealed? There always are, but it's hard to imagine where they are hiding at this point. Since Frans, the compiler of the daily game review lists, is attending the show himself, I think game reviews will probably just take the show off, which sort of follows the theme of looking towards the future, rather than the past (yes, that's purely a rationalization, but not bad, huh?).

Corporations can't regulate themselves because the bottom line always comes first, so the gubment has to.
Obesity has a massive negative economic and lifestyle (physical and mental health) impact on society, and it has to be dealt with.
Most people aren't aware of the problem or are too lazy to care (because they're obese), so someone has to do something.
Also, you have to remember this suit is in part at trying to get corporations to change how they target children through advertising as well. It's pretty slimy how they go about it now.
They're not trying to ban Oreo's, just trans-fats, which is a good thing.
