Welcome to — June 8, 2011

Welcome to! Big news for world cities — that’s my conclusion from a trip to São Paulo, last week, covering the C40 meeting featuring Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Bill Clinton and World Bank President Robert Zoellick. The story shown here is a somewhat expanded version of the basic column (Post Writers Group release for newspapers). We have no new Associates article this week, so I’ll keep posted last week’s story on the Supreme Court’s ruling on California prisons.
