The city has taken away from you the simple pleasure of a beer and a cigarette, the delicious trans fats that made food you know is not good for you even less good for you, the words "nigger" and, potentially, "bitch" from your vocabulary, and, if Peter Vallone Jr. has his way, the right to look out your window and into your neighbor's. So what can the City Council come up with to ban next? Today's Sun finds the answer: Styrofoam! "It is mind-boggling that our city, which is becoming a leader on environmental issues, is still using Styrofoam when we know it is extremely harmful to our environment and creating massive amounts of waste," said the councilman behind the idea, Bill de Blasio. And frankly we're disappointed. That makes perfect sense: Can't he come up with something more creative to ban?
