Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Mayor Riley of Charleston, SC on Design of Greatness:


Joe -- I'm a consumer who demands more. Maybe I'm a spoiled consumer, but I prefer to shop in Italy and pay a higher price (Euro being so strong) for things of beauty.

Roger -- You would have liked Riley a lot. He got very creative to accomplish what he has so far. Details are how we build lives.

Nice post. Must have been a fun evening.

OI like this principle: "Obsess over details." True for just about everything we do.

"It doesn't cost more to create beauty and harmony than it does to build ugly stuff."

YES!!! I couldn't agree more. So why don't consumers demand better? The strongest voice/vote we have is with our dollars. Yet so many hard-earned dollars seem to be spent on ugly stuff.
