Stories You May Have Missed This Weekend at OJB (Jan 3-5)!

Lily Tomlin & Jane Wagner

We’re evidently supposed to share this, and I personally wish the couple the best, despite the pain of finally ending my childhood dreams of becoming Mr. Lily Tomlin.

While you were out cavorting this post-New Year’s weekend, perhaps still hung over from your New Year’s Eve revelries at the marriage (after 42 years together of Lily Tomlin and Jane Wagner), you may have missed the following stories:

About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Corrupt party hacks hate him. He's OK with that too. He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
