Wills & Gendar note: “Archbishop Timothy Dolan is grabbing the olive branch the Obama administration extended on birth control, saying he’s happy to offer the feds a “graceful exit” from the election-year uproar.”

Ken Lovett writes: “Democratic Rep. Carolyn McCarthy’s Long Island district is on the chopping block as state leaders begin redrawing congressional boundaries, the Daily News has learned. State Senate and Assembly negotiators are looking at merging McCarthy’s Nassau County district into a Nassau-Queens district now held by fellow Dem Gary Ackerman, sources close to the planning said.”

Pete Donohue reports: “The city plans to make one of Manhattan’s most dangerous corridors safer for pedestrians. The Transportation Department said Wednesday it will shorten 14 crosswalks on Delancey St. between the Bowery and Clinton St. by widening sidewalks and medians.”
