The debate over New York City's Living Wage Bill has gotten near scatological. Mayor Bloomberg is opposing the bill, which would require any project that gets more than $100,000 in city subsidies to pay either $10.50 an hour with benefits, or $11.50 an hour without. Brooklyn Councilman Jumaane Williams worries that Bloomberg's position on the issue means he's not eating the right foods: "The administration, I think, is so full of it. You guys should consider a high-fiber diet." [NY1]
