Willie Brown in North Beach an hour ago

Walked into Café Roma at 6:45 this morning and Eyewitness News was interviewing Willie Brown about the California race for governor. He said that if Jerry Brown can engage Meg Whitman, he’ll destroy her credibility, that Sarah Palin is coming to the valley and that all Republicans will pay homage and that it’s a comic tragedy. Willie sparkles. He’s a storyteller.

At the same time Mexico is dominating South Africa in the World Cup on the large TV. Now it’s 7:30 and the café is full, maybe 50 people, most cheering for Mexico. Still no score. I love North Beach and its European flavor.
