I'm attending the Congress for the New Urbanism conference in Salt Lake City this year as part of a Streetsblog Network training/workshop/networking event, and on Wednesday afternoon we had several guest speakers address our group. The last of them was John Norquist, current CNU president and former mayor of Milwaukee, who's urbanist cred as mayor includes the the removal of the Park East Freeway and a decline in poverty coincident with a boom in downtown housing.
Early in his talk he spoke highly of Streetsblog and his own use of the site. He mentioned that, at 63 years old, he doesn't use the computer much, but when he does he regularly drops by Streetsblog to get the news. Clarence, the man responsible for Streetfilms and a big Norquist fan, said that might be the best endorsement Streetsblog has ever received; as such, I thought I'd commemorate the event with a suitable meme.
So without further ado, the Most Interesting Man in the World:
You have to admit, there is a resemblance.
