Politico is out with its annual list of 50 “thinkers, doers and dreamers who really matter in this age of gridlock and dysfunction,” and by some oversight I’m on it, with Â an insanely flattering profile andÂ a fairly flattering sketchÂ
Now, if I had my druthers, I druther be one of the Forbes 400 than the Politico 50, but I’ll take what I can get.
For the record, the BOTEC/RAND team that did the Washington State work included about 50 people, with Jon Caulkins, Beau Kilmer and Angela Hawken (among many others) contributing much of the intellectual firepower and Steve Davenport, Bob Jesse, and Lowry Heussler doing most of the organizational work. The “hemperor” may not be entirely naked, but he’s certainly dressed in borrowed clothing.
