Trivia (9)

Democratic U.S. Senator from California (1992- ).
Mayor of San Francisco (1978-1988)
Ascended to the mayor's office of San Francisco after her predecessor, George Moscone, was assassinated. Feinstein, at the time the head of San Francisco's Board of Supervisors, was the person who found the mayor's body. She carried a permit for a firearm when there were threats against her family in the 1980s while she was mayor, however she no longer carries the permit.
Roll Call magazine, a Capitol Hill newspaper, lists her 2002 wealth at approximately $50 million.
Was considered one of the final two people for the vice presidential nomination under Democratic presidential nominee Walter Mondale in 1984. The nomination instead went to Congresswoman Geraldine A. Ferraro of New York.
She was president of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors when, in 1978, fellow supervisor Dan White shot and killed Mayor George Moscone and openly gay Supervisor Harvey Milk. She served as mayor of San Francisco from 1978-1988. In 1990, she beat then-state Attorney Gen. John Van de Kamp in the Democratic primary for Governor and then, narrowly, lost to then-GOP Sen. Pete Wilson. In 1992, Feinstein defeated then-state Controller Gray Davis in the Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Wilson. That race was notorious because of Davis' running ads comparing Feinstein to tax-evading hotelier Leona Helmsley. Feinstein went on to beat Republican John Seymour, a former state senator who Wilson had appointed to his old seat upon becoming Governor. In 1994, Feinstein only barely survived the GOP tide against multi-millionaire Republican Michael Huffington. In 2000, she had an easier time besting Silicon Valley moderate Rep. Tom Campbell. She has become a respected member of the Senate, gaining praise for her even-handed work on the Judiciary Committee.
Daughter, Katherine Anne, born on July 31, 1957.
Chair, U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee.
When serial killer, Richard Ramirez, was part-way through his rampage, then-San Francisco Mayor Feinstein, without consulting police, held a news conference and displayed the model of Avia shoes that Ramirez had been wearing to each of the murder sites. When Ramirez saw the news conference on television, he threw the shoes off the Golden Gate Bridge and used a different pair for future murders. Police were incensed at Feinstein for revealing a key piece of information that they intentionally had been keeping secret precisely so that Ramirez would not switch to another pair.

What the China situation, or the other countries' situation, shows is that these automakers, in all of these countries, build the automobile that the requirements for mileage state. And they don't fight it, they just do it.
