Column: A tribute to the Fabulous Mrs. Unruh, a true original

I once wrote about Chris Unruh and her Las Vegas-style performances at the Buckhorn Lodge in Mount Baldy, where she billed herself as the Fabulous Mrs. Unruh. She died earlier this year, a passing memorialized in, of all places, the New Yorker, and by, of all people, the great Susan Orlean. I belatedly pick up the torch for my Friday column.

Column: No asterisk needed for 2020 Dodgers, says ’88 exec

I’d been struck by a comment Fred Claire, the former Pomona newspaperman and Dodger general manager, had made to me in our interview in July, namely, that he’d decided that the upcoming baseball season, in whatever form it took, would be legitimate and that whoever won the World Series would have a legitimate win. His old team won, as it turned out. I followed up with him Friday.¬†Also: “I Love L.A.” was not always accepted as an anthem and a Chino astrologer says the stars bode ill for Tuesday’s election. Uh-oh. All this in Sunday’s column.
