How Much Difference Can One Person Make?

Marginal Revolution has a great story on how the mayor of Bogota implemented a number of seemingly bizarre strategies to try and make the city into a friendlier place. His first hand spanish account is fairly interesting.

For a bit of reference from another perspective

I think this sums up my view on politics (is Bush a good or a bad leader) and religion (knowledge and doctrine vs. action and change) and education (what's the perfect teaching style). No matter what you do, you are usually better off seeing something through to the end. Working through solutions tends to bring one's developed and latent talents to the fore front. This tends to take you places that otherwise would not have been imaginable.
