From “Willlie’s World,” the Sunday opinion column of former Mayor Willie L. Brown, Jr. in today’s San Francisco Chronicle.
“Sometimes I feel like the Rodney Dangerfield of mayors.
“I hopped onto a packed-to-the-rafters F-line trolley the other night and the driver immediately announced, ‘Ladies and gentleman, you are riding in the mayoral limo.’
“To which some guy in the back piped up, ‘They don’t have limos in Mineola.'”
Mayor Brown grew up in the tiny Texas town of Mineola.
Just shows again that you never know who you’ll see on the F-line.
