One adviser likens the process to "intellectual liposuction." When Edmund G. (Jerry) Brown Jr. set out 15 months ago to flesh out themes for his Democratic presidential campaign, he vacuumed up ideas from a diverse set of policy gurus. "These talks aren't exactly dialogues: He controls the conversation, and you're never sure what he's picking up," says Arthur Laffer, the supply-side economist who is an informal Brown adviser. "He questions you closely, then it's--bing--on to another topic."

For many Californians, 72-year-old Jerry Brown's return to Sacramento for another go at being governor brings with it more than a little dab of déjà vu. Consider: He is inheriting the job from a Republican actor/politician, American soldiers are fighting in foreign lands, director Roman Polanski has recently been in the headlines, the McRib is back on the menu and '70s and '80s influences are back on the fashion runway. But that sense of déjà vu doesn't extend to the man himself ?

For more than 30 years of Jerry Brown's adventurous political life, the stylish, bald Frenchman with the designer tattoos and Zen haiku banter was Brown's soul mate and sounding board. People compared the relationship of Brown and Jacques Barzaghi to Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, the visionary knight and his faithful sidekick. To others, it was more like Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady, the bohemian buddies from Kerouac's classic novel "On the Road."

The city of Oakland will pay $50,000 to settle a sexual harassment claim against Jacques Barzaghi, Mayor Jerry Brown's closest advisor, whose alleged comments to a female employee led to his three-week suspension. The employee, Nereyda Lopez de Bowden, agreed to settle the case because she did not want to go through a difficult trial, her lawyer said.
