I wanna do that!

Interesting NYTimes piece on Teresa Heinz Kerry and the foundations she oversees. The article worries about political influence, but I just love what she is doing. Revitalizing Pittsburgh with green buildings, forcing public schools to improve as a condition of receiving grant money, creating new public spaces, and just giving back to the community in very targeted ways. She is making a real, measurable, sustainable impact by leapfrogging the traditional politial processes. I think I know what I want to do when I grow up. 🙂
