Plaschke returns

L.A. Times columnist Bill Plaschke won best column honors from the Associated Press Sports Editors for the second time in three years today. That begs a question: where has Plaschke been?

He's scheduled to re-appear in the paper tomorrow and resume his regular Friday, Sunday, Wednesday routine, says Harvey.
