Thursday’s Headlines: Moving on From the Election Edition

The news on Wednesday was dominated by election postmortems (and Gothamist’s great map of how your neighborhood voted this time versus the last gubernatorial election), so we’ll just get to our daily digest of the thin news beyond the polling place:
