Regarding Willie Brown and his cars of renown, let me make sure I have this right: Brown bought a Porsche in '89 for $82,000. He sold it recently for $78,000 after having driven it three times, which works out to about $1,300 a spin. But the way Brown figures it, "So far I've not lost money." That's some screwy sideways mathematics our Speaker is working with. No wonder we've got a state budget crisis you could drive a fleet of Ferraris through.
