Mr. Brown

The current Mayor of Oakland, CA(and former governor) has always been one of my favorite modern political figures. He's gotten a bad rap as being "nuts"(as opposed to other politicians, who are nuts and more besides), but it's mainly because he speaks his mind and has never been afraid of innovation. He's taken a very principled stand on campaign financing, walking the walk that people like McCain are only too happy to simply talk. I've always had more respect for politicians such as Brown that are unafraid to appear as crazy as they actually are, and manage to get things done anyway. So it's with some amount of interest and pleasure that we welcome him to the blogosphere (link via Cooper). Hopefully his blog won't just be a repository of press releases.
