Espinosa got it right--no good deed in Palo Alto goes unpunished by either the city council, one of the many "we are on a power trip" committees/commissions or some group of neighborhood "leaders"

Mr. HP wants to be nice to Mr. Cisco.
What a surprise.
Building a super big McMansion in the open space district is a good deed?

John's kids are all grown up! I am delighted that John found time to attend city council. I wish Palo Alto city is as well run as Cisco. We need more of great business leaders to be more involved with our city administration, charities, etc.
