Happy Breed

by Iris Herriot

“S.F. Mayor London Breed had her own French Laundry [3-star Michelin restaurant] party … while encouraging others to avoid gatherings.”
—San Francisco Chronicle

The mayor’s name was London; she kept the party clean
By booking with French Laundry for non-starchy haute cuisine.
Good taste but awkward timing!—the tone of this was deaf;
The details just not credible (or only in S.F.).
