Bloomberg: Humanitarian or dictator?

Just saw that Bloomberg is now trying to remove cigarettes from eye sight in stores throughout New York City. I'm sure that most of you have heard of his attack on sugary drinks and the such in the prior months. Do you consider this to be change for the better or just a way for him to show how much control he has over the lives of people in NYC? Can't the people of New York City make the decisions for themselves?
