bridges and this year the ambassador of south africa same to san francisco and came to local 10 with the nelson mandela humanitarian ward. i was speaking of nelson mandela because of his fear there were over 90 world leaders that doesn't speak to each other that showed up. president obama shock hands with him and we're thinking about the ability to negotiate and one thing about arrogance i believe it's a downfall of any individual and nelson mandela was humble and people looked at up to nelson mandela. and i think in every city
2:11 am

2:12 am
people and that's the one thing nelson mandela did. your by itself report card is when you die and people show up. they might have million dollars and millions of dollars but to pay respect to this man a humble man many of the people saw this man's heart. i have to say i'm proud of nelson mandela and that rare ability he had i wish more of us had it. thank you >> shall we go back to the last item on your guardian. thank you sfmdz >> you recall les i didn't kate's and jim went and attend the port conventions the port of san francisco is a sisters of a number of ports around the ports
