Well, Tuesday’s Ontario council meeting was kind of a bust, news-wise, but at least it was short. Speaking of short, five very cute children from Grace Yokley Middle School went to the microphone to address the council. In round-robin style, the students declaimed about an upcoming walk for cancer. It’s a 5K walk. “That’s 3.1 miles,” their teacher said helpfully.
I couldn’t help but be reminded of last week’s episode of “The Office,” in which clueless boss Michael Scott hosts a 5K run to defeat the scourge of rabies. The event was grueling, but not as grueling as it first seemed to Michael. As receptionist Pam explains: “He thought it meant 5,000 miles.”
