And Here's Your CityLab Editor Doing the Ice Bucket Challenge

Brrrrrrrr. 

My friend Ezra Klein challenged me in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, so yep, I went ahead and had our social media editor, Lex Berko, dump a bucket of ice water over my head:

Ezra made a great point about the ALS Association being both an extraordinarily good cause and having had extraordinary success with this fundraising effort, so in addition to donating to the ALS Association, I've also made a donation to the Against Malaria Foundation, which distributes insecticide-treated nets to help protect people from malaria all over the world. 

I'm tagging Ariella Cohen, Alissa Walker, and David Alpert. Your turn, guys.
