Congratulations, Los Angeles, you've just become the largest city in America to ban plastic shopping bags from supermarkets. And congratulations, Los Angelenos, you finally have a use for all those movie premiere swag bags lying around your closets.
According to the LA Times, this initiative was "egged on by actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus and an array of environmental groups," which sounds like the Commie-est group of eggers-on ever assembled (love you on Veep, though, Julia!).
I kid, I kid. I don't want the manatees or whatever to die. But what I want to know is this: If Los Angeles is so concerned about harmful plastic, why is Heidi Montag still on the loose?
