On a recent trip to Oklahoma City I had the pleasure of meeting once again with my friend and colleague from PRSA Mary Myrick. As President of Public Strategies, Inc Mary is a busy lady and a lot of fun to be around. When I met with Mary at the PRSA Councillors Academy in Palm Springs she was on her way to L.A. to purchase a smart car. With true Mary Myrick style Mary chose a bright green car needless to say I am impressed with her choice of color. The lovely little car made its way back to Oklahoma City and I had the pleasure of seeing it when I visited. You can see the now award winning green (very appropriate) vehicle on Mary’s blog. The car is called Bev although Mary did not share with me how the name got chosen.
These very cute and very fuel efficient cars have been available in Europe for some time and my children were fascinated by them when we visited England. despite being very environmentally conscious I would not drive one in Phoenix. The idea of going on the Freeway with the SUV’s in one of these cars is about as desirable to me as becoming the next governor of Alaska.
