This Is...Pomona College?

The New York Post laments losing Brooklyn native son Jonathan Lethem to sunny Southern California.  He'll be taking over the Roy Edward Disney Professor in Creative Writing post at Pomona College, which was vacated when David Foster Wallace stepped off the mortal coil two years ago.

I just hope that the post is not analogous to that of drummer for Spinal Tap.

A bigger tragedy is the one that befell the fella he's replacing! ;)

Yeah, it's Pomona College, my veritable backyard.

Deal with it, New York! Damn right we stole your Dodgers, you Brooklyn Losers. Had to come to L.A. so they could finally win something.

Kiss our collective Southern California tuckuses, New Yawk.
