So Moved - And the Pursuit of Happiness Blog - NYTimes.com

So Moved - And the Pursuit of Happiness Blog - NYTimes.com: "The 4th biggest city in Brazil, 2.5 million strong, votes by direct ballot on the city budget. The city provides training and the budget process and some tens of thousands participate. As a result they've eliminated hunger and illiteracy. Why not NYC and Omaha and LA. Let's get busy and spread the word. And just in case you're skeptical, keep in mind that the idea of electing leaders would have seemed quite absurd not all that long ago in history!"

Absolutely fabulous graphical blog entry on that page as well.
