Thought the candidates might be interested in Michael Lewis' latest piece in Vanity Fair:



"Stuff rolls downhill"

I'm surprised at how widely circulated Lewis' article is. Lorne's reference is the fourth one I have seen or been sent by friends and it is definitely worth reading.

I had a chance to meet Michael Lewis last year and he is quite an interesting and unassuming guy. You should also see Moneyball--the movie based on his excellent book about the Oakland A's.

I also recommend Lewis' other "financial disaster tourism" articles in Vanity Fair, on Greece, Iceland and Germany (available for free on VF's website).

Two Cents

I see that Rosalie O'Mahoney is on the endorsement list for Terry Nagel. Guess they kissed and made up. Politics does make VERY strange bedfellows. People hold their nose and do strange things during political campaigns. YUK!

Hey, it's shoo-in for the incumbents but I thank Ortiz for stepping in to even have an election.

AS FOR NAGEL, SHE WANTS HIGH SPEED RAIL TO RIP THROUGH THIS TOWN & HAS NOT LISTENED TO THE RESIDENTS OF BURLINGAME. She talks and talks and talks and talks and talks (come up for air, Terry and listen to others) and in the end after talking, talking, talking, talking, she only listens to her opinion.


"shoo in"? Like when Russ Cohen was a shoo in over Jerry Deal? There's some famous last words.


Well Two Cents, you do have two votes. The race may not be over yet. There are a lot of people around town who have put up Ortiz signs in their yards. And, opponents of High Speed Rail have an ally in Ortiz.


The sign war continues in the tiny town of Burlingame. What a joke. Deal sign here and Nagel sign with better positioning or vice versa. Deal seems to be following Keighran's lead from long ago, placing signs in the dried grass in front of houses that are empty and up for sale. Maybe the same sign installer is at work. I know many a person with a sign for Deal or Nagel in front of their houses who have no intention of voting for either. Nagel used to describe the Galligan et al council as filled with "good ol' boys." What is so different about the present council with the exception of Brownrigg and Baylock. Politics in Burlingame are a joke and nobody ever sticks to the points outlined in his/her campaign, except Baylock, who has always been true to herself and the residents of Burlingame. The rest are only in it for themselves and the wonderful health benefits they will derive from being on the council. What about term limits???????
