My favorite soft drink of the 1970 is going, going, gone.
It was Tab.
I pretty much mainlined it while in the Illinois House of Representatives.
Twenty cents a can in the machine on the same floor as the House and Senate chambers.
Then the government found that (massive) amounts of saccharine caused cancer in mice.
That so shook my world that I pretty much remember where I was in Coventry Subdivision–near Don and Judy Blanchard’s home–when I heard the news on WBBM.
I’ve switched to Diet Coke, but still remember the good old days.
Now, it is to be no more.
