Column: Shirley La Verne appreciates this joke

A banner next to a La Verne entry monument features Penny Marshall in her sweater as TV character…must I tell you? That item leads off Friday’s column, trailed by the closing of a Starbucks, an event Saturday in Pomona about the long-missing time capsule at which yours truly will be among the presenters, a few words about the “sea of slobs” surrounding Claremont and more.

    I remember as a kid visiting Universal Studios where they had a replica of the car K.I.T.T. from the TV show Knight Rider starring David Hasselhoff. You were able to sit in the car, and K.I.T.T. would talk to you. K.I.T.T. asked where I was from, and after replying “La Verne”, the car asked “Where is Shirley”. So even 1980’s TV show talking cars are in on the joke.
