What Should You Do If Anne Gust Brown Yells At You?
Sen. Bob Dutton, the Senate minority leader, complained yesterday that Gov. Jerry Brown's wife, Anne Gust Brown, yelled at him during closed-door budget meetings.
"I was yelled at more than I was talked to," Dutton said. "And mostly by Mrs. Brown, not even by the governor."
The reason for the yelling, presumably, was Dutton's seven-page list of demands -- which included things like hacking up CEQA and doing away with teacher seniority.
But whatever the reason, it raises an etiquette question: What should you do if the governor's wife yells at you?
