There is an indirect Green Party connection, however. When my ladyfriend Kayleen was in Chicago for the Illinois GP's ballot access drive last month, she attended a seminar at the University of Chicago's Place Lab, entitled Ethical Redevelopment: Arts + Culture Build Cities. (She also made her aegyptophile pilgrimage to U. Chicago's Oriental Institute.)
The material that she brought home made my head spin with possibilities when I finally got around to reading it two weeks after she returned. I was going to share this last week, but the horrors in the news pre-empted me.
