Willie Brown Goes Down a Zip-Line for San Francisco’s Project Insight

The kids from Project Insight were quite amused this afternoon to see former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown take a run on the fantastic British Columbia Zip-Line near the Ferry Building. Here’s an account from John Coté.

Willie, sporting cashmere, handed out souvenir mittens from Up North:

Good for you, Mr. Brown.
