Ready to Lead?
With the State of California deficit reaching something like $750,000 Trillion, it's hard to think what things will be like next year when the Gubernatorial race comes up again. This cool comparison photo in this morning's consistently underwhelming San Francisco Chronicle (not nearly as entertaining as the San Francisco Examiner which frequently misspells San Francisco on the front page and has been knowing to leave Greeking in places where they ran out of time to insert actually) accompanied this article suggesting that it might come down to a race between Newsom and Brown. It makes you wonder if Gary Coleman and Mary Carey might throw their hats in the ring again. Though seeing Mayor Newsom in that little sailor suit the year Nixon resigned was a great way to start off a Monday.
Speaking of politics but on a more local scale, this post by The Angry Young Man was rather interesting about retail battles on the avenue they call Valencia.
