Separated at birth? Not.

Mary Rossing, Jane RossingGeorge Washington and Bernie MadoffI’ve been a fan of ‘separated at birth’ since the days of Spy Magazine, so when I saw Northfield Mayor Mary Rossing in the HideAway Coffeehouse and Winebar last week with someone who looked somewhat like her, I paused.

The mayors and the rest of the assembled bicyclists went on the Tour d’ Art (PDF flyer), a " bicycle tour of the public art in our communities." See the actual route on the Tour d’ Art / Ride with the Mayors live map on the ArtOrg web site. Councilor Erica Zweifel emailed me the other two photos above.
