Smoothie Leaves a Bitter Taste  
Regarding the carriage horse that died two weeks ago, many others and I would love to see the carriage horses banned from the city. It is a long-corrupt industry with its cash-only business greasing many palms in local government. In the meantime, the horses are treated like garbage, even a recent city audit by the comptroller agrees. The interaction of animals with increasing traffic has been devastating to the horses. Enough already! The Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages is trying to get as many people to sign its petition as possible. The petition can be found at www.banhdc.org.
