In the News: Cuomo Blocks Plastic Bag Fee

••• “NYPD cops able to talk Virginia man out of killing himself in Tribeca hotel room.” It was at the Sheraton. —New York Daily News

••• How to make the “roasted” blood orange dessert from Augustine. —New York Times

••• Chef Marc Forgione bought an apartment in Chelsea. —Curbed

••• “Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signed a bill on Tuesday effectively killing a law that would have imposed a 5-cent fee on plastic bags in New York City, disappointing environmentalists as well as city leaders who characterized the move as a classic case of Albany’s overreach.” Indeed. The city passes a law, but the state disagrees, so it overrides it? “In its place, the governor promised to form ‘a statewide task force to develop a uniform state plan for addressing the plastic bag problem.'” Lame, lame, lame. —New York Times
