Must we remind you?

naralrun

We’ve said it before, and golly gosh darn it, we’re 110% willing to say it again: if you haven’t yet signed up for the NARAL Run and Walk for Choice, you are behind the bell curve. And nobody wants to be behind the bell curve.

What is it? A run and/or walk around Greenlake in support of NARAL. And when? That would be Saturday, May 9th. It’s one of the best possible reasons for a nice walk around the lake! Be thurr.

Your weekly cash money moment

Last week we got touch off the beaten path with our Cash Money Moment. This week, we’re into the stratosphere. This guy decided to add his drumming to a Lil’ Wayne/Cash Money original, an idea that could be doomed to failure. But he pulls it off. In an ideal world you’d be able to hear the original song better, but this is no ideal world, and dude can drum!

Why urban design matters

Well, actually, there are a lot of reasons, but this is an interesting take on it. Nate Silver (oh He of FiveThirtyEight fame) goes to town on how the built environment shapes cultural and community norms. One of his points? City design equals community, and community equals political perspective. Therefore, how you build your community defines your local politics. Interesting, eh? Kind of puts your neighborhood planning process into a new light…

Watch, enjoy, critique.
