Be afraid


Traveling in Clarksville, Tenn., Upland reader Richard Armour was startled to see the above sign. “Found out about your hidden political agenda,” he says. Today, Ward 8. Tomorrow, the world.

    But are you a David ‘D’ Allen?

    [No. — DA]

  • Charles Bentley


    Isn’t Ward 8 where they developed Plan 9?

    [No, Plan 9 came from outer space. — DA, pitying readers who don’t know what we’re talking about]

  • Bob House

    Oh, the irony — considering your well-documented phobia about missing the last train.

    I would vote for you if I could.

    Unlike the folks that are running for the more minor offices currently, I have some idea of what you’re about.

    And a sense of humor is sure to affect my voting decision favorably.

    But I also feel that you’re too smart to run for any public office.

    [Holding public office would be incompatible with writing a newspaper column, but I’ll gladly accept your vote of confidence for me to continue writing. — DA]

  • Long as you don’t put any signs in the vacant lots or corner houses of Pomona, you’d have my vote.

    [But if I didn’t, would you know I was running? Ah, there’s the rub. — DA]

  • Rod L

    If you did run for a public office, wouldn’t it have to be for District Attorney? Elect DA for DA. Bam! You’re welcome.

    [It’s the job I was born for! — DA]

    At least you wouldn’t have to decide which city council meeting to attend.

    [Ha ha! Good point. I would, however, have to decide which city to move to to have the most fun/impact. My current home of Claremont might not cut it. — DA]

  • I was going to post a comment about Metrolink’s expanded service, but Bob House has his Head in the game long before I did. Hey hey, David may come to your town!

    I want to know just WHAT it was that Ward ate, and why he put that banner ad on Mr. Allen’s campaign sign. Spammers…
