"Speaking of Ron Dellums, there he is."

And there he was, sitting at a long table with a group of well-dressed folk, one of whom we recognized as California Speaker of the Assembly Karen Bass. The mayor's party was about twelve strong, and we couldn't hear a whit of what they were talking about, although we did have some fun guessing. What on earth would a NorCal mayor and an LA-based Speaker have to talk about? We have our guesses. We hope Ron had the cannelloni, though...it was really, really good.
