Chris Peterson

Chris Peterson, long time voice on this comment thread, passed away due to pancreatic cancer on May 10th.

Chris and I met in the 6th grade at Hennessy School in Grass Valley. In later years we were roommates in Nevada City and Tahoe Donner, where we worked together in the kitchen at the Northwoods Clubhouse.

There were times I wanted to murder him, and others where he saved me. All in all he was a good friend and a voice of reason on many topics discussed on this blog.

My condolences to his family and friends.

Mother’s Day

A political party that forces a woman to bear the bitter fruit of rape and incest, or places her health in jeopardy has no right to call itself pro-life.

Remembering Kliban

Bernard “Hap” Kliban was one of my favorite cartoonists, an exceptionally nice man who gave me much encouragement when the ink was still wet behind my ears.

I should have been doing yard work today, but instead I drew this little tribute to a master of the absurd.

Capitol Gasbags

Why don’t I buy an electric car? I don’t have a spare $40-$60 grand to spare right now.

I may have some issues with the LGBTQ crowd, but Florida’s war on gay is just flat out bigotry, spurred on by Governor DeSanity.

Dakota Sid Clifford

Dakota Sid Clifford has passed on to that great campground in the cloud, where he is now reunited with the love of his life, Jennifer. Sid has been a pillar of the local musician community for almost half a century, and thankfully has left us with a large inventory of music to remember him by. We always looked forward to the yearly gathering at his home in Chicago Park on the first Sunday in May, affectionately known as the George Bendover party. He was a good friend and will be sorely missed.
