I made a quick trip for eggs to the Pomona Stater Bros. this morning and saw former-disappointment-of-a-Mayor and Current Assemblywoman Norma Torres shopping there. She and her husband had their cart chock full of groceries. I suppose she should be congratulated for doing her part by shopping locally - although technically the Von's in LaVerne is closer to her house, and I suspect closer to her heart. As a resident here, I am grateful for her tax dollars.
I could not resist checking out her purchases from afar. She was buying mostly items in boxes and cans, not a lot of fresh stuff, at least one bag of chips. Perhaps Norma grows all her fruits and vegetables in her backyard.
I found today's photo on flickr.com, which seems to identify Norma as a 2009 Woman of the Year. So I suppose seeing Norma at Staters qualifies as the closest thing to a celebrtiy sighting this side of the 57.
