The Palo Alto Post has picked four choices for Council even though there are still two months left in the campaign. Their slate includes four of my five bottom-dwelling worst-possible candidates. The only thing Dave Price and I agree on is that Greg Tanaka would be a nightmare continued.

edit to add, six weeks after the election: I finally met Cari Templeton, at the Cali Ave street fair, and although she would not sing for my “When You Were Mine” contest, we did an interview on video. I ended up supporting her. I think her thesis on Brothers Grimm at Stanford was rigorous that she can think of herself as a Stanford grad. She also said she would “kick (his) ass” if Pat Burt bullied her. I recognized Varma at Old Pro or in front of the Old Pro having a social distance brunch but was afraid to say hi. Ed Lauing lost but is re-applying for commissioner again – I think they should give his seat to Rebecca Eisenberg.

I still hate the Post. (And they did not better than me: getting one in four right — in my case it was Greer Stone).
