  •  And the Moonbeam Thing-- Brown Wanted a VTC Room (3+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    And on that "Moonbeam" nickname-- Brown was called that by Mike Royko or some similar unfunny Dave Barry type, because Brown proposed (in like '77 or so) that Sacramento be video-linked via satellite with San Diego and other far away places for meetings, etc, to save on travel time and expenses.

    It was cutting edge, intelligent thinking-- so of course the talking head dunces will make fun of it... that's why they're dunces.   Basically, he was calling for a Video Teleconference Room (VTC), a cutting-edge thirty years in advance.
