Props for the mean middle finger to cigarettes and trans fat, but now Bloomberg — who loves himself a big Barolo — wants to monitor how much booze we buy, too. According to the Post, “The city Health Department’s far-reaching Partnership for a Healthier New York City initiatives proposes to slash the number of establishments in the city that sell booze.” This means reducing bar and liquor store “density,” and possibly banning liquor ads on the subway. Advocates of the alcohol industry say it won’t happen without a brawl, drunk or not. [NYP]
