    If it's not weird, dumb and just plain loony it wouldn't be Cambridge. Many years ago, there was talk of a group trying to get a movement going to have that city secede from the United States. It would make more sense if they went all the way and seceded from Planet Earth.

    Why this icon?

    The pedestrian could be accurately depicted as looking down at a cell phone, or having its head in the clouds. Or a head full of something other than a daisy.

    The generous profile is non-judgmental, but a more slender one could promote an organic, raw, vegan diet instead of mainly micro-brews.
