The People's Republic of San Francisco

San Francisco, 1990 Green Street: I'm reporting today and for the next few days from the heart of Blue Country, the People's Republic of San Francisco. I arrived yesterday and am staying with son John on Green Street, only three blocks from the house where his mom grew up. From the North facing windows I can see U Street, John's resturant on Union Street, the Palace of Fine Arts, the Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito, Belvedere, Tiburon, Angels Island and the bay. Sail boats are out in force on a clear and windy day. What a great place to visit!

Yesterday John and I went to Gold's Gym where JJ worked us out. Being personally trained by JJ is more painful than listening to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid whine about the "Nuclear Option." In the evening we went to U Street for dinner. The menu is even more fabulous than my last visit two months ago. Delicious! The resturant was filled up until we left around 9PM. It was interesting that singles outnumbered couples and 2/3 of the singles were women. It's no wonder that John spends a lot of free time there.

Later this afternoon we are going to a reception for Christine Todd Whitman, two term Governor of New Jersey and head of the EPA under President Bush from 2001 - 2003. The event is at the home of a member of "Lead21" an organization of young Republican business leaders. John recently joined the group. It should be interesting. Stay tuned.
