So last night after yoga class I'm standing in the check out line at our local Earth Fare and I spot the latest issue of Good. This issue's theme is "Here Comes the Neighborhood." Given all the work I've done with neighborhoods (including my own) over the years, I purchased this as a must-read.
I've just started digging in, but I came across something immediately blog-worthy - a quiz about local slogans. It turns out that "Keep Houston Ugly" is one of the several "Keep America Beautiful" riffs around the country. For whatever reason, Texas has several, including "Keep San Antonio Lame" (care to explain that one, Matt?), "Keep Austin Weird" (heard that one before), and "Keep Waco Wacko" (fair enough).
Athens needs a better slogan than "The Classic City" (besides "Keep Athens-Clarke County Beautiful" which is a great organization but not a great slogan). Maybe I'll start a "Keep Athens..." contest .
