It’s been a while since I presented any literary references to the Inland Valley, but Sunday’s column brings two, plus some Culture Corner items and a Valley Vignette.
Sunday’s column begins with a couple of items that will warm the hearts of the nerds in my audience, as I find local references in two stories by Harlan Ellison. After that, two Pomona-related stories from the past, one about a 1959 robbery that involved the star of TV’s Wyatt Earp, the other about the 1938 filming in town of a Bing Crosby movie.
All the above items, by the way, were written last year for use during either a dry spell or a vacation. I finally got to use them during the latter. Hooray! I’ll be back at my desk Monday.
