The old ball game

Don’t buy me peanuts or Cracker Jack: For baseball fans with peanut allergies, the Seattle Mariners are offering a 200-seat, carefully pre-cleaned peanut-controlled area of Safeco Field this season, beginning with Sunday’s contest with the Texas Rangers.

The peanut-free areas will be in effect at four games, whereas the entire outfield will continue to be a defense-free zone at all M’s games.

If you take a walk I’ll tax your feet: In Colorado, the Legislature has sent the governor a tax on house paint.

In a rare double-win for environmentalists and interior decorators, the tax will pay for a recycling program that will both keep paint out of the waste stream and encourage homeowners to cover up those hideous 1990s pastel colors.

Don’t make him mad, we need to get across that bridge: Kicking off a campaign to drum up tourism at the Jersey Shore, Garden State Gov. Chris Christie on Friday promised an added incentive: He won’t get into verbal altercations with passersby, like a July 2012 incident in which Christie yelled at a heckler.

As a precaution, however, Christie’s aides plan to test the governor’s resolve by recruiting a brave volunteer to cut in front of him in the line at the ice cream cone stand.
