Battle of the bow ties over New Urbanism heats up!

George Will’s attack on Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and our fair city in this week’s Newsweek was pretty funny to begin with:  Watch out!  The New Urbanizing is metastisizing!    But now it’s really getting fun.   

Loyal Portlander Rep. Earl Blumenauer lambasted Will from the House floor , inviting  him to a verbal duel.  Ever since Blumenauer tweeted out his challenge , it’s been boomeranging around Twitter and in news by those for whom Twitter is news.    

Stay tuned.
