If Only the Mayor and the Colonel Would Get Together, We Could Solve a Lot of Problems

In a breathtaking synergy, KFC is teaming up with Louisville's government to fix the city's potholes with KFC advertisements. What's more, they're offering to do it elsewhere, asking mayors to nominate their cities:

Four of these lucky cities, chosen at random, will receive KFC's road re-"fresh"ment, promising citizens a smooth drive that is fit for a Colonel.

Given all the hubbub over whether to build boulevards in South Lake Union, sidewalks in the North and South ends, etc.--this discussion featured prominently in Mike McGinn's mayoral candidacy announcement--perhaps the city would like to free up a few dollars by accepting the Colonel's offer? After all, he has deeper pockets than your average working stiff. (Chicago's Mayor Daley is considering it.) We left a message with the mayor's office and will let you know when we hear back.

Update: Nickels spokesperson Alex Fryer says the Mayor's not interested:

Since Mayor Nickels took office, we've filled 419,000 potholes. Our Pothole Rangers are meeting the challenge to repair potholes within 48 hours. So for KFC, it's thanks but no thanks.
