    "Standing near the shoreline of the Anacostia River, Gray said the ban is another step towards making the river “swimmable, fishable. I know that sounds like a distant goal, an unrealistic goal, but we’re going to make it.”

    I thought the Bag Tax was for "cleaning up the Anacostia river"

    @S.E I think Gray is just trying to find something he can attach himself to so he can say that he helped his community.

    His legacy is blowing in the wind as of right now.

    The bag tax was one step towards cleaning up the Anacostia. A ban on polystyrene clamshell containers is another step, like Gray said.

    Ah, Vince. One City started out with such ambitious goals, and concludes with... polystyrene bans. In with a bang, out with a whisper, amirite?!

    One City, still some punchlines in the waning days.
