If I were King

Under the heading: Oh if I were King.

If I could control New York City policy for a few hours, I'd ticket every car that's double parked on a major street during the morning and evening commutes, and I'd prohibit the collection of garbage during the commuting hours.

Think of all the time that's wasted, stuck behind double-parked cars or behind sanitation trucks. How much does that cost the City in terms of lost productivity and air pollution and cases of high blood pressure?

I'm just sayin'.

Speaking of costing taxpayers, we're covering the signing at the White House of the tax cut bill. After all the brouhaha and nastiness, we can only hope that these pols spend the next two years when the cuts will expire reexamining U.S. tax policy and coming up with a better system. We'll have the latest on the tax bill and reaction, tonight at 11.

Also at 11, we all know about bad hospital food. Now, one local medical center is trying to change all that. We're talking good food, healthy food and, hang on, served by folks in tuxes! C'mon, you say, can't be true. It is. Phil Lipof has our story tonight.

We'll also have any breaking news of the night, plus Lee Goldberg's weekend AccuWeather forecast (it looks like we'll avoid a major snowstorm on Sunday), and Scott Clark with the night's sports, including the first appearance of the season at Madison Square Garden by Lebron James. Should be quite a reception. I hope you can join Liz Cho and me, tonight at 11, right after 20/20.
