Consider this statement from paragraph 3 of "Ban the Ban!": "Remember the days when New York was a really cool and fun place to live? Me too. Now a simple thing like going to the movies has even lost its 'flavor.'" How is this an overgeneralization? Though not have a soda at the movies can be inconvenient, it doesn't ruin the whole experience; you go to the movies to watch a movie, not to drink soda
In the last paragraph of "Ban the Ban," explain how the sentence "What is going to be next?" introduces the logical fallacy of slippery slope. The author claims that the soda ban will lead to a salt ban which will lead to minimal freedoms, which will lead to people living in the land of Big Brother and not in the land of the free.
