Willie Brown and Mayor Ed Lee at Cafe Roma This Morning

Willie Brown (Speaker of the California State Assembly for 15 years, San Francisco mayor in the late ’90s) must have a TV show. I’ve seen him often at a table in Cafe Roma in North Beach, SF, with major size video cameras filming him, when I get there, around 7 AM. This morning he’s meeting with SF’s new mayor Ed Lee and a third politico guy who’s always here with Willy. They’re sitting about 15 feet away. Wille’s telling stories and there’s a lot of laughter

Willie is a beautiful man, he’s gotten better looking with age. This morning he’s wearing a gorgeous brown sport coat, dark slacks, a deep red tie and deep red handkerchief. Dude!
