Willie Brown Not Digging Alice's Civic Center Garden

New, 2 comments

Civic Center: Poor Alice Waters. Her sustainable union with Mayor PlumpJack just broke ground last week, and already the "victory garden" is getting all kinds of (incredibly entertaining) flak; this commenter sums up the general feelings nicely. The latest person to express skepticism is none other than the always-quotable Willie Brown, though he might have arugula confused with horsies: "Former Mayor Willie Brown, whose City Hall makeover helped clean up Civic Center, wasn't overly impressed with Newsom's turning the plaza into Green Acres. 'You start having cows and chickens and goats and other things at Civic Center,' Brown said, 'and I'm not sure it's a good idea.'"
