By the way, the following was supposed to appear in the paper today, but didn’t, to explain my column’s absence:
“Laid low by the flu, columnist David Allen missed Monday’s Upland City Council meeting and instead spent the evening at home under a quilt watching ‘Grosse Pointe Blank’ on DVD. He probably got the better part of that deal. His column should return Friday.”
And it should. I’m back at my desk, at least for half a day. I’m still a little achy, a little breaky, but better.
