Dukakis alert

Who’s in town? Former Democratic presidential candidate Michael Dukakis, whose daughter Kara lives in San Francisco. Buried in this pre-convention interview with the 1988 loser is the news that “Dukakis, a railroad buff and former Amtrak board member, and his wife are joining two of their grandkids in San Francisco and riding the California Zephyr train back over the Rockies to the convention city” of Denver.

Anybody see Dukakis around town?

    when I lived in LA Dukakis would speak at the Democratic club’s meetings when he was in town teaching at UCLA and he is really hilarious. He is also a big rail fan and really knows his stuff on that issue.

    The funniest line he had was when he said "if you really want to accomplish something, forget putting a man on Mars…if you can get a man down the 405 at a reasonable speed and on time to his meeting THAT is worth a nobel prize!"

    anyway, he’s a good guy. He even autographed my old 1988 Dukakis for President sign!
