It's early morning and I'm in San Francisco, with my 11" MacBook Air (the single most beautiful tool I've ever owned), with a latte at Caffé Roma. Ex-mayor and uber-politico Willie Brown is being filmed here, at another table. Talking about something or other. Willie dresses impeccably.
At noon I'm meeting friends from Lowell High School, Class of '52, for lunch at Schroeder's 100-year old German restaurant. San Francisco natives, an endangered species… Next year will be our 60th reunion, ulp!
