A Washington DC councilman wants to ban the sale of individual slices of pizza.  Why?  He says they contribute to crime.  From dcist:

But Jim Graham, Councilmember from Ward 1 and no friend to pizza molto grassa, says the nuisance goes further than that — much further. According to ABC7, Graham says the piece of pie is disrupting peace of mind, contributing to “street fights, stabbings, muggings and even a shootout involving two plainclothes police officers.” Quote Graham:

“Even though [Jumbo Slice is] a legal business and everything, they have become a nuisance. Behaving the way they do in terms of music, in terms of letting people hang out and also in terms of tolerating a certain level of violence”

Enjoy your pizza while you can, DC.
