Tuesday, June 26th: Celebrate columnists; masters of the written word. Today is NATIONAL COLUMNIST DAY. Week in, week out, columnists write for their readers of every genre conceivable. Erma Bombeck, Ann Landers, Dave Berry … there are so many “greats” in column history. Thousands of local and syndicated columnists around the nation deserve a pat on the back for the day. Today honors them. Thank you for your time and endless patience to bring words of wisdom, advice and humor to our daily lives. (Go check out my favorite Inland Empire columnist, Diana Sholley, at http://www.dailybulletin.com/dianasholley. Okay, David Allen, I hear you in the background; I can’t forget you either http://www.dailybulletin.com/davidallen)
