Vernon is lovely this time of year *

creditAh, the rich cultural history, snow-capped mountains and sun-kissed beaches. Sounds lovely — too bad the Vernon link on Supervisor Gloria Molina's county website doesn't point to the strange little industrial city southeast of downtown Los Angeles that she represents. Supervisor Molina's chosen city of Vernon is located far from here in...British Columbia, Canada.

* That was fast: Fixed this morning.
