As we're sure you know, it's usually not pretty when something comes between a drunk and his pizza, and just like at many late-night bars, it's not uncommon to see a scuffle break out now and again. Of course now a DC city councilman is looking to spoil the fun:
Ward 1 D.C. Councilman Jim Graham, who represents Adams Morgan, says the pizza parlors selling single slices along 18th Street, some of which are open until 4:30 a.m., are part of the problem when it comes a recent rash of street fights, stabbings, muggings and even a shootout involving two plainclothes police officers.
His proposal? Ban single-slice sales of pizza. Seriously. Just when DC was getting cool, the city up and tries to ban pizza? Think about this a little bit harder, Wash; there are Georgetown students and ambassadors even, who need their single slice fix and can't justify ordering a whole pie. What'll be banned next? Ice cream cones?
