On Saturday, lights on the Citibank building in Shanghai lit up over the Huangpu River to "welcome Jerry & Anne Brown and California delegates to Shanghai."
The message required the approval of local publicity officials, and in the original script was one word to which they objected: governor.
For purposes of the massive Shanghai skyline, the governor and first lady of California would just be "Jerry & Anne Brown."
