Does Seattle have the largest Mayor?

This story in the times today got me worried. It's not that Mayor Nickels wants to keep building taller buildings in Seattle's most scenic areas, I mean it's that photo (first on left) and these... especially that last one:

Nickels St Nickels Sgn Nickels Dems Nickels

I want to live in a first class city as much as Mayor Nickels wants me to. I take comfort in knowing that while other cities might have the "People's Mayor", we've got the "Developer's Mayor". I just want to be sure that working for developers as hard as Nickels does helps him live well enough to eat the best and be bigger than all the other mayors.

I don't want to just live in the country's greatest city, I want to live in the city with the largest Mayor. Urban planning I've been told is all about density.

So, I took a look at the country's most populated city mayors and I think we can rest at ease, other than San Diego, Mayor Nickels is kicking ass... Clearly, dining frequently with developers is good for our city's mayor! So, there's no need for us to worry.

Or is there...?
