In case you didn’t get enough of the Brits during the Olympics, here’s another global project from them: a cultural survey of 12 “world cities,” initiated by London’s wonderfully improbable mayor, Boris “Bozza” Johnson.

It won’t create the buzz Johnson got for his “glistening otters” description of certain Olympic athletes, but, here in Chicago, as we await delivery of our new cultural plan from Toronto, it’s relevant.

Brace yourself, however: we know we’re global cultural destination material, but the World Cities Culture Report does not mention our town.
