Barry Bonds and Democracy?
Posted by Allison Fine on September 17, 2007
I just received an email from a friend that included this paragraph:
Fashion designer Mark Ecko bought the ball – for over $750,000 – and is now going to let the people decide what to do with it. This is a light moment, so we’re not going to talk about the other things he could’ve done with that money. If you go to his web site: http://www.vote756.com/ you can vote to take it to Cooperstown, stamp an asterisk on it an take it to Cooperstown or send it into orbit. Having been convinced by my son, I voted for the asterisk. This is a fun, democratic moment.
It is indeed a fun, particpatory idea. Imagine what Congress could look like if we used this kind of input to redraw Congressional districts?
