And the Stylesization of the 'Times' Continues Apace

From "Mayors Discuss Efforts on Gun Crimes," a Times article by Sewell Chan reporting on the meeting Mayor Bloomberg organized at Gracie Mansion today, in which 15 big-city mayors pledged to work together to reduce gun trafficking and gun crimes:

But the mayors have little formal influence over national firearms policy, and the political climate in Washington is largely hostile to new gun restrictions. Mr. Bloomberg acknowledged those hurdles in his opening remarks to the mayors gathered in the mansion's ballroom, whose walls are covered in Wedgwood-blue Venetian plaster.

Sadly, no detail was provided on the carpet or window treatments.
