Is D.C. Paris?

The Washington Post reports that the D.C. Council is getting yet more “progressive,” especially on “quality of life” issues.

“People are looking for a fresh approach and a progressive approach,” said [Council member Tommy] Wells, who said he travels to Europe each spring in search of initiatives to replicate at home.

Apparently Europeans recommend bike lanes, bag taxes, and organic foods, but not lower taxes, better schools, and less crime.
