I’m so pleased to share my first stint as guest blogger! Helm of the Public Realm just published my meditation on English vs. US transportation. At this rate, I’ll be internet-famous in no time.

The doorknockers in my neighborhood are amazing. In a twenty-minute walk yesterday, I counted 38 distinct ones.
