Kudos to Ali Williams, Russ Cohen and Stanford Federal Credit Union for a great season. When I ran for City Council in 2009, one of the only things on my platform, in the ballot statement booklet, is that I thought it odd to cut a $20,000 music series, the Brown Bag, from a $100 million budget.

I get paid but not as much as the $1.7 million people in Berkeley who are magically helping the ouija board we call the comp plan, or Laura Stetson the consultant to last night’s shin-dig, probably rakes in $1,000 an hour, from Pasadena.
Or, as Randy Newman says, via joe cocker or jacob jeffries: leave your hat on.
