are bound for our city come January
The presidential scion and the blood-spattered winner of the Late Night Game of Thrones
will be here for the National Automobile Dealers Association yearly expo. This will be a rare opportunity for Leno to provide comic relief — fellow speaker Beck Weathers will recount the time he attempted to climb Mount Everest,
lost eight colleagues, and, miraculously, survived the ordeal sans his right hand and part of his left.
Leno will certainly elicit a chuckle or two after that.
Also heading to town is the American Truck Dealers Convention
, in which attendees will be offered the opportunity to glean "six powerful steps on how to achieve professional and personal goals by asking the right questions and being persuasive."
If they can sell trucks in this city
— they're golden.
Attendees who don't deign to bring their own set of wheels — beware. The locally based livery service enjoys shaking down the out-of-towners
Perhaps Leno, Bush, and the rest of the automobile industry could hop on Muni?
In a confluence of the least-conceivable San Franciscan people or things all heading to San Francisco, former Florida Republican Gov. Jeb Bush, erstwhile comedian Jay Leno, and a mess of big-assed trucks
