NOB HILL--There he was: Matthew "Skippy" LaCombe, eating macaroni and cheese in the Flying Star with his handler, Jim Scarantino. It is not easy for a mayoral candidate to eat undisturbed, and such was the case today. The first thing that strikes most people about Skippy is his sophistication: his "Yes, I'm jaded" stare. The way he can sit at a table and take over the whole room. His aura of command is awesome...even for a 20 year old. And most of all, the hallmark of his campaign, the principle he will never abandon: FLEXIBILITY!
- Proof of flexibility #1: He changed his mind twice about Rapid-Ride buses between mouthfuls of noodles.
