Your Prius is a Hummer. This car drinks NO gas.


French automotive company Venturi announces the Eclectic – a solar, wind, and electric-powered vehicle that will “make your Prius look like a gas-guzzling Hummer.”

More here. I want one.

And I’ll wear my helmet.

The logo for Chicago’s Olympics bid. Nice. Glad the flame is really buildings. The buildings in the logo kind of look like the Sears Tower, but not really. Wouldn’t it be nicer if it showed specific buildings from our storied inventory?

It’s supposed to show “the vitality of a city that rose from the ashes.” But I think fire and Chicago buildings don’t mix. Ask Louis Sullivan.


The green in the logo is for our efforts at sustainability and our parks and the blue is for Lake Michigan. The logo was designed by VSA partners. You’ve seen other work of theirs, for example if you’ve been to Chicago Children’s Theater.

Go Stanley! Go Helmut!

Nonprofit housing.

Here’s that story I told you was coming from the New York Times.

Money graf:

“Chicago has the most vibrant nonprofit housing community in the country,” said Henry G. Cisneros, the former housing secretary during the Clinton administration and a prominent advocate of affordable housing. “If you want to talk about a city with a comprehensive approach to housing and ending homelessness, Chicago kind of sets the pace right now.”

The projects also showcase what is turning into another tradition in the city, that of sustainable, or green, design.
