I, too, dug the passionate and simply irreplaceable Andre Coleman’s column in today’s Pasadena Weekly, as Todd Ruiz blogs at Under the Dome. It hit the spot with a historical perspective on the most serious subject we face. But I’ll also point to the brilliant return of the funniest guy who ever wrote a newspaper column in the 125 years of Pasadena newspaper columns: Mr. Jim Laris! I knew I’d been missing my dose of Cigar Smoke; until I read today’s Weekly, I just didn’t know how much. Jimmy, we hardly knew ye: now that you’re back in print , would you please stay? Except, did you forget how to type the real F word, or what? Sincerely, a fan.
