Rodoni memorial at 2 p.m. Wednesday

This promises to be the can’t-miss event of the year. It should have a little of everything—sincerity, hypocrisy, grief and the practiced appearance thereof. Roger would have laughed his ass off.

Join what will undoubtedly be a large crowd of well-wishers and political grand-standers 2 p.m. Wednesday at Belotti Hall at the Humboldt County Fairgrounds in Ferndale.

Both bugs will be in attendance. Look for the two rubes at the back of the room sending Roger off in a style we think he’d appreciate—with respect, remembrance and a back-pocket bottle of Jack Daniels.

  1. You two rubes better bring that booze cause I’m bringing some of my red neck buddies to toast Roger the cowboy way.

  2. You got it, Anonymous friend!!

  3. You goddamned bug-fuckers. Why’s it got’s to be y’all can be all up in da joint an’ I caint?

    A toast from me! And also from that Billy Shakesalot dude from the pink Avon lady.

    “This day is called the feast of Crispian:
    He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
    Will stand a tip-toe when the day is named,
    And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
    He that shall live this day, and see old age,
    Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
    And say ‘To-morrow is Saint Crispian:’
    Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars.
    And say ‘These wounds I had on Crispin’s day.’
    Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,
    But he’ll remember with advantages
    What feats he did that day: then shall our names.
    Familiar in his mouth as household words
    Harry the king, Bedford and Exeter,
    Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,
    Be in their flowing cups freshly remember’d.
    This story shall the good man teach his son;
    And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
    From this day to the ending of the world,
    But we in it shall be remember’d;
    We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
    For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
    Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
    This day shall gentle his condition:
    And gentlemen in England now a-bed
    Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
    And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
    That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day”

  4. If Bon Bon shows up, will someone please kick her ass outside……thanks.

  5. J.W. also.

  6. As a grand-wishing well-stander, not a grand-standing well-wisher, I will, alas, miss the event. You two bugs…enjoy.

  7. Something as high class as this event means Johnny Walker Red Label you think?

    But I guess Mr. Daniels will work in a pinch.

  8. You’re so right, but we couldn’t find an ass-pocket bottle of the good stuff. We think Roger would understand.

  9. You can get Scoresby in a nice back pocket bottle, trust me, transfer it to a plastic flask and it’s perfect for taking to a baseball game, or, in this case, a memorial service.

  10. Crown Royal comes in some handy bottles.

    Not that I would know that or anything.

    Drink a toast for me. I’ll miss him.

  11. Two noticeable absences. Patty Berg and Wes Chesbro send represenbtatives Goosby and Stewart. Didn’t have the decency to show up themselves. Bonnie and John had the courage to show up. To honor the man.

  12. Although I looked around today in Ferndale, I just couldn’t find a blue bug (or even two of you – is this going to be a blue bug epidemic??). Perhaps you were hidden in some of the people that showed up today. Were you hidden in John Woooolllley’s hair”? If not, were you on someone else?

    Where were you little blue bug(s)?? I looked and could not see but then maybe I didn’t want to see . . .

    You are a treasure little “bug”. I can imagine Roger looking under his desk and that comment made me laugh in these tough times. Keep it up blue bug(s). A lot of us like our little invasion of blue bugs in this county.

    Too bad there aren’t bluebug pins. I would certain wear one and risk being bug sprayed by BonBon at the BOS.

  13. AWOL, it’s a work week in Sacramento. RIP, Roger. Go, Estelle.

  14. Connie Stewart was an outright embarassment. Some one should have thrown her out the side door for her snotty remarks.

    As for Wooley and Neely – showing up was just so disingenuous.

  15. Connie had to get up and speak – she cannot resist blathering infront of a crowd no matter how major her fuck-up. Light is on NO ONE is home in THAT package…

    Hat’s off to the locals, family and friends who restrained themselves from doing what we all wanted to do: KICK them ALL out on their asses… it would not have reflected well on Johanna.

    Bless her for her dignity and strength.

  16. It wasn’t a peace march, no way in hell you could get Patty Berg up here.
