Green: We Do it Better

Was that even a contest, anyway? Of course San Francisco's green plan trumps LA's, a mere gesture of environmental concern. Did they forego plastic bags in supermarkets and bottled water in government buildings (or whatever that was about). Did Morphosis design them a Greener Than Thou Federal Building? Does their Mayor jolly around at places like the Sunset Idea House? No. No they didn't ban plastic bags, nab a hot architecture firm, or vote in a mayor who hands out bottled water and makes eyes at wind turbines as a means of gaining political clout. Just in case you don't believe us: of over 400 votes, 67.9 percent of you think that San Francisco will carry it off with aplomb. Thirty-three percent of you think Los Angeles will one-up us. Turncoats.
