Lynne Plambeck: Who is in charge?

I will never forget stopping into the Los Angeles County Regional Planning Department several years ago to discuss an issue with a planner. She told me she didn't have time to talk because she and another planner were due in Supervisor Michael Antonovich's office shortly for their weekly planning briefing, but I could join them on the walk through the basement tunnel to his office to talk, if I wanted to.
