Is he trying to compete with "Keep Austin Weird"? I bet that started as a perjorative too.

It should be "surrounded by real estate."

If they go the "focus group" route, it'll only be worse. Then you get some mindless slogan that could be used by any city and doesn't mean a thing.

How about "Madison -- want to argue about it?" That's where this'll end up.

Somewhere in the forum archives there's a topic about some forgotten Wisconsin slogan with a goofy logo showing upside-down people. It didn't make any sense at all and I haven't seen it since.

Agreed. This angle's been played.

How about "77 miles down 94 from a county full of bat-shit crazy Republicans"?

Other than it would be factually incorrect, that's still a better idea then Soglin's
