    A big Parade is schedule to celebrate the event tomorrow
    October 12th in San Francisco. The oldest one in the Nation
    on it's 140th year! And, to add to the excitement, Tommy
    Lasorda will be M.C.!! He looks so GREAT after losing all
    that weight! (Well "Sorda," anyhow) There are two people's in
    this world, Italian's and those that wish they had our $$$$.


    P.S. Oh, it's on "Columbus Av., of course"!

    Tommy Lasorda looks great? You musta been nippin' the cooking sherry again.

    Some years ago on TV station KTLA---the historic station that went on the air during WWII and was once owned by Gene Autry and is still broadcasting from the former Warner Bros. studio on Sunset Blvd.-

    Yes, the studio w/ all that history behind it---had one of its announcers say that on Columbus Day we observe the birthday of the famous Spanish explorer.

    You can lead a horse to water but that doesn't necessarily mean you can teach it anything.

    After writing this Post, it was brought to my attention at

    another website that Tommy Lasorda wasn't gonna be M.C.

    of the Parade after all! Seems ifin Tommy was concerned that

    He might not make it back in time after the Parade to witness

    the DODGERS playoff game down in SoCAl. Although He was

    offered a police escort to the SFO AIRPORT for the flight to

    L.A., one of our Board of Supervisor Members, "Lady" Michela

    Alioto-Pear let it be known that this former Dodger Manager

    was NOT welcome to M.C. the Parade in SF, the Home of the

    rival Giants baseball team! How petty (MS. Pretty)!! Her

    deceased grandfather, and former Mayor of SF, would have

    been appalled that a fellow amiable Italian-Amer. had been

    treated so rudely! I'm sorry Tommy. Who's next Michela,

    Tony Bennett?
