Meet Virginia

Virginia Bass, that is.

I'm not sure that I've noticed the Eureka Reporter do this before: A profile of a local celebrity, following her around for a day.

I found it a pretty fun read. I think it might be a good news angle to pursue, although I'm not sure I'd be all that interested in a behind the scenes look at many of whom we consider local celebrities.

Maybe I should compile a list of people I'd be interested in knowing more about a submit it to the E/R?

I know, I know: You're all saying, "How about a profile of you, Fred? That would be a great read...". Nope. Boring. Virginia, and most of the other celebrities have lives. I don't.

I don't remember the ER doing the same treatment for the former mayor Peter.

Maybe he wasn't as interesting. Neither did the ts, eye or any others. Only Gallegos has had a day in the life coverage.

Mayor Bass is quite possibly one of the more intelligent and sophisticated mayors that we Eurekans have had.

Who determines interesting? Having breakfast and working at a restaurant is interesting? Not to say her life is uninteresting but I can't imagine anyone’s life in local politics being any less interesting.

"sophisticated"? In what way?

She is a simpleton.

I think it makes sense to have a "simpleton" reside over Eureka

Is she one of those Humboldt women who doesn't wear deodorant? This problem crosses the political spectrum btw.

Somebody should also tell these Humboldt women that facial fuzz is only appropriate in junior high.

"She is a simpleton."

What we really need in a mayor is a blogger who angrily pecks out anonymous insults on his keyboard.

Instead, we have a gracious, hardworking woman who does volunteer work in her spare time.

That's only true if you care what low life, cheap beer drinking, tv watching, patriarchal assholes think.

Don't you dare use the words "liberal twat" in a derogatory manner. You are missing out bigtime...

Is it just me or is there are small group of nasty, rude, radical anonymous bloggers who hide behind their anonymity to personally slam anyone and everyone who doesn’t agree with their agenda?

If you’re going to “bitch-slap” someone in the local media (especially when photos are used), at least have the intelligence to use your name.

I’m not sure where this anger is coming from in this thread. Is it now wrong to have a job, be a mother and volunteer in your community?

I have a request of all you anonymous bloggers with so much courage -- please post your picture. I want the option to slam any perceived physical defects of your body, hair styling, make-up, etc.

Otherwise keep any personal “slam” comments to yourself. I do hope your parents at least taught you some social skills.

I think you people better watch what blogs you read then, fred is the king of obscene.

It's easy for Anonymous to post lots of nasty comments and almost look like a "small group." It's likely one person.

Maybe two. Someone needs to do a Hannibal on them.

That's right Joel. How true.

Mayor Bass seems like a good person and a hard worker, too.

The Troll Bloggers are Nick Bravo and Charles Douglas. They have no idea what it is like to keep a job. Both have been fired countless times. Both lack any muscle or definition because all they do is sit on their ass and flap their gums. You might want to say the only muscle they have is their gums.

I heard Virginia is working on a homeless campground for Eureka.
