Column: Pope attacks columnist in Upland pizzeria

That headline ought to turn a few heads, or result in a few clicks, eh? Friday’s items column begins with a freak accident involving yours truly and a commemorative plate of Pope Francis. After that, the usual news ‘n’ notes from around the valley.

    Stories like this are why I love this column. Not that I enjoy the thought of our columnist getting banged up about the face, but the writing, and the good cheer throughout (instead of suing the owner, you’re bantering with him, and he’s bantering back!), make me think good things about humanity.

      You’re welcome! I knew I should write a few lines about the incident, it being so (literally) off the wall, but hadn’t expected to make it the lead item until thinking up the irresistible headline.

    A line that only David Allen acolytes could accept as newsworthy: from your column, the announcement that we could see “a photo of the stack of CDs I took on my road trip.”

      Not to mention “yours truly gets new glasses.” Well, there’s a reason these are blog posts, where only the cognoscenti will see them, or care.

    Hilarious Headline

      Yeah, that was a once in a lifetime headline opportunity … one assumes.
