When a city unintentionally lies about its age
David Allen is a columnist with the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, and he recently shared a story in his blog.
One of his readers, Rubio R. Gonzalez, happened to be looking at his water bill from the city of Pomona, California. He then noticed that the city seal on the water bill listed a founding date of 1988 for the city.
The only problem? The city was actually founded in 1888, not 1988.
Is it possible that the goddess Pomona was lying about her age?
As Allen’s post notes, the mistake had eluded everyone until Gonzalez found it.
