Supporting our allies

This morning, Jeff Harrell suggested that I and others run Union Jacks on our blogs in solidarity with our British allies in the wake of the terrorist bombings.

I think that’s a great idea, but I’m going to take a slightly different tack– I’ve been thinking a lot about leadership lately: In our neighborhoods, in our city and in the world. And driving in to the office this morning, I heard a radio host pondering whether Tony Blair’s response would be more Chamberlain-esque or Churchill-esque.

So instead, I’m running the attached art, which also hangs on the wall of my partner Kevin’s office.

And if you’re wondering how this is hyperlocal — Every terrorist lives in a neighborhood, somewhere.
