Obama Cruises Holt Boulevard
Obama, however, must have gone by those ugly dirt plots just below the 10 freeway on Towne, which renews my vow to get something planted there this Spring.
Anyone up for making this a project for the upcoming Pomona Beautification Day? If so, post below and I will call the Korean Church who owns the land to see if they are still on board. Otherwise, I'll take on a project I can handle myself,
like the Memorial to the Lone Palm Tree Fire of 2007.
As for Obama, I got a big kick out of the photos on the various blogs and at the Daily Bulletin. Honestly, I was worried last night that the Gas Company guy from Pomona who was shot might upstage the Edison folks, but in the end the kids at Village Academy and on the streets of Pomona, stole the show. How could I ever doubt my people? (And here I thought Norma Torres was sure to ruin the whole thing.) Of course Pomona was not even mentioned on the 10 p.m. KTLA news segment on Obama.
I've been trying to post links, but bloggers not allowing them. Thanks to the Pomona School website for the photo of the group of students with Obama, and Pride of Garfield Park for the photo of the two kids along the parade route. See more great photos from her at Pomonawatch.blogspot.com.
