Willie’s World: Chron’s man in China likes his hotel in Hong Kong

Sunday, March 31, 2013

Willie Brown’s (pay-walled) Sunday column carries a Hong Kong dateline and leads with how swell the hotels in China are these days. Old-fashioned types who remember when a newspaper’s ethics forbade political junketeers from doing double duty as columnists are reminded by Brown, who’s part of Mayor Ed Lee’s delegation, that this is his “seventh official visit” to China.

Brown may be multitasking oversees under the Chronicle’s imprimatur, but he still manages to get in a couple of shameless restaurant plugs for his peeps back home.
