Pizza Controversy

Newly sworn-in New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has only been in office a few days, but he's already found controversy. On Friday, the mayor went to a pizza parlor on Staten Island and ate his pie with a fork. Pizza purists are furious, saying the proper way to eat New York Style pizza is to use just your hands. De Blasio responded to the critics by saying he is Italian and in his heritage, it is proper to eat pizza with utensils. He may not be making friends with his new constituents. De Blasio is a diehard fan of the Boston Red Sox, a hated rival to the New York Yankees. Other New York City mayors and even U.S. presidents have all been seen eating New York Style pizza in the past with just their hands.
