being the primary photographer of "Meet the Mayor" working out for you?It has been an adventure. I've met some crazy peeps, and
I'm helping make the Foursquare mayor transcend into the realm of celebrity.
mayor of your car - why do you call it the Raccoonmobile?To sum it up, it's a line from a Kurt Vonnegut book involving
an Armenian character. He reflected upon himself as a half-tamed old raccoon.

deal with your car?I love running things over. It's so much fun.
favorites?Used to be nuns and orphans, but it was fun running over
young Republicans at a Michele Bachmann rally. . . . This
interview is going in a bad direction, don't you think?
i've found young Republicans to be very difficult to kill, due to their unholy
regenerative powers.That's why you've got to back over them, and drive over
them again, sometimes a couple of times. I'm a firm believer in being thorough.
