Having discarded his coffee soaked paper towels, the man sauntered into his guest bedroom where a eastern view of the undulating bay waters and Oakland Hills blazed in the morning sun. Picking up a putter, he walked over to a mini putting green and continued his murmuring soliloquy, “That museum and $5 million endowment took the wind out of our sails. Including a 45,000 sq. foot Mexican museum, spanning the lower floors of both buildings, was smart politics by Millennium. Our lawsuits against the building made us look like a bunch of rich kids trying to stop an ethnic institution from celebrating Mexican culture in order to protect our precious views. They beat us on public perception. That’s why we lost.” He bent his legs, straightened his arms, and took a putting posture over a golf ball. A gentle swing of his arms knocked the ball a shy left of the hole. “Damn! All this stress has ruined my short game.”
