D.C. Councilman Jim Graham, a friend of pizza, after all.

An update in the story about D.C. Councilman Jim Graham's supposed pending legislation to ban late-night jumbo slices:

Graham does say he wants the places along 18th Street that sell the single slices to lower their music and to make sure there aren't fights inside or on the sidewalk.

"We have had violent crimes occur on the premises, but it is not the consequence of serving pizza," he says.

There was no such talk, Graham tells radio station WTOP, saying,"It's upsetting. People think I'm crazy."

We thought you were crazy, too, Mr. Graham. Apologies for jumping the gun and assuming the worst. Carry on.
