Keep ATXplained Weird: New Voting Round!

It's time for another voting round in our ATXplained project!

So far, we've tackled the questions of Austin's changing demographics, the synchronization of its traffic lights, the origin of the "Fair Sailing Tall Boy" memorial on Lamar Boulevard and the mysteries of Austin's favorite bird. You can check out those stories hereherehere and here.

We picked three questions, submitted by you, our audience - now it's up to you to pick the winner. The question that gets the most votes will be the next story we investigate for ATXplained.

This time, we're doing our best to keep Austin weird with questions about classic Austin quirks (and mottos about quirkiness).  

Where did the phrase "Keep Austin Weird" come from? And is Austin REALLY all that weird anymore?

What was the true story/background of Leslie Cochran?

What's the story behind the skirts/photos/stuffed animals on telephone poles on South 1st between the river and Oltorf?

Voting in this round is open until Wednesday, May 4. You can cast your vote below.
