Willie Brown’s day of shout-outs, little else

Monday, July 15, 2013

Good thing he writes a newspaper column instead of offering TV commentary. Willie Brown’s vocal chords might otherwise be strained after all the shout-outs in the Chronicle Sunday. To Willie Mays (he’s pitching for a presidential Medal of Freedom); to NTSB chairwoman Deborah Hersman (“she’d make a formidable” candidate for public office); to Congressman Mike Honda (“a nice guy”); to the super-yachts lined up for the so-far hugely disappointing America’s Cup (“now those are some boats to look at”).

Speaking of Brown: Judging from the deafening silence, that trial balloon to name the west span of the Bay Bridge after him appears dead over the water.
