Nanny Bloomberg at it Again
Obama is jealous he hasn’t thought of all of these ideas.

Despite the blowback received on some of his more controversial ideas, such as limiting the size of sodas, hiding tobacco products from view and encouraging bicycle riding, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is pressing ahead with his latest idea: composting food scraps.
“It’s revolutionary for New York,” Eric A. Goldstein of the environmental group Natural Resources Defense Council told The New York Times. “If successful, pretty soon there’ll be very little trash left for homeowners to put in their old garbage cans.”
It would not be a first. Many other cities already are composting food, The Times reports, but New York has been seen as too big – and too vertical – for such a program to work. But despite historically low participation in mandatory recycling programs, pilot runs have shown some New Yorkers willing to give the new idea a try.
