When he read in the news that a gang of women thieves were stealing clothing at Lululemon stores around the Bay Area, our resident palindromist Alan Wald (no fan of yoga pants) cabled us that the crime wave has spread to The 49th State: "Palindrome-loving thieves in Alaska targeted one particular branch store: Nome Lululemon."

Alan Wald wondered what would happen locally if Proposition 64 passed November 8, legalizing marijuana in California. (It did pass!) One possibility floated by enterprising pot farmers is to grow weed in Rockaway Quarry, assuming of course that Measure W loses at the polls (it did!) and quarry owner Paul Heule rides his eenhoorn (Dutch for unicorn) back to Michigan (stay tuned on that!).
Meanwhile, Alan says Pacifica palindrome lovers wasted no time registering "To Pacifica Pot" as the pot farm's name, when their dreams came true in the election.
Palindrome lovers suggest that Melania Trump plagiarizing Michelle Obama's speech strikes another sour note in the Trump campaign:

On Pacific Coast TV's The Bruce Latimer Show, April 6, Pacifica Prince of Palindromes Alan Wald created two palindromes from front-page stories in the April 6 edition of the Pacifica Tribune.

With Terra Nova's Wizard of Oz set to stage this weekend, several Pacifica palindrome lovers hoped to land the Wizard role so they could exclaim: "'Tis a Wiz of Oz -- I was it!"
Irrepressible Pacifica palindromist Alan Wald telegraphs the following news about Pi Day:
Woo-hoo! Trying to decide how you're going to celebrate Pacifica Pi Day (3.14) this year? Be sure to avoid the congested SFO airport and typical math holiday madness caused by too many smarties in the Bay Area. For starters, Pacifica palindrome lovers suggest we check in with Pacifica's fast new zoo director, who announced at her first staff meeting exactly one year ago that she had taken charge of the operation and immediately had ordered an increase in the number of hippos from seven to roughly 22: "I'm atop Op. Pi hippopotami!"
And who could forget the palindrome-loving chef on Pacifica PCT Channel 26, who explained as he prepared an exotic chowder (or distinctive surf-and-turf) recipe to celebrate Pi Day: "I pot cod, nag, and octopi!"
Perhaps the best news of all, Pi Day this year is two digits longer: 3.1415. So as we prepare to celebrate Pi Day, Pacifica palindrome lovers say, when offered a slice of celebration cake: "I prefer pi."

"Mr. Alan Wald eyed lawn alarm."
