Anti- Heraldo Movement Afoot?

Everybody keep their eyes open and report back here.

I just drove by the intersection of Hodgson and I Streets in Eureka. On the telephone pole on the east (or would that be northeast?) corner there's a little white paper sign someone tacked up there. It's white paper with black lettering, maybe 4" high by 6" wide and just says Heraldo Sucks, obviously referring to our very own Humboldt Herald.

I'm guessing if there's one, there must be more. Post your sightings here along with any other information you may find out about this effort.

Update: Talked myself into running back there and taking a picture of it before Heraldo tore it down.

Maybe it's not a criticism. Maybe it's an advertisement?

Did "R. Trent" and "heraldo" have a falling out? Too funny.

Oh come on, Rose. Admit it. You put that sign there. How many did you put up in Arcata and Mckinleyville?

Somehow I cropped that picture wrong. I'll fix it later.

Some people call it highway blogging. Only this would be street blogging.

Talked myself into running back there and taking a picture of it before Heraldo tore it down.

Why would I bother? I leave far worse than that on my blog.

Nonsense. That's the greatest possible compliment.

Well it could be Rivera?

Someone is squandering important local resources to impugn a local hero.

I doubt it, unless you wrote it. If that would have been considered a compliment, wouldn't he have had the url of his blog attached.

Hank: Be square with us. Did you put that thing up?

We could save resources by adding more names instead of leaving blank space: Heraldo Geist and Lovelace SUCK! for example. It would also save telephone pole space for other poignant thoughts.

You think I'm dull enough to boost the opposition?

Seriously, Fred -- there's nothing better than being notorious. Sort of a synonym for "interesting." That flyer was like a gift to Heraldo. Whoever put it up might as well have sent her a pair of front-row tickets to the next Amy Goodman appearance.

One more thing, Fred: If you're moderating comments, why do you let the Drozian nonsense through?

Hey 5:53 - The Petch House Blog is great! Are you for real?

If we would all just remove 6 staples every day from a power or telephone pole in our fair cities, our utility line men and line women would no longer have to fear being cut and shredded on their way up the poles to maintain or fix our wires. Only 6 per day! Everyone, please join this noble effort!

Poor anonymous. Can't do much of anything for himself.

I want some to post!

Sometimes I don't pay all that much attention to what I'm supposed to be moderating. Sometimes, I think I'm approving one comment when I'm actually approving a different one.

I've removed the one you were referring to.

Notorious publicity is still publicity. Congratulations, Heraldo!

Thing is, Heraldo really does suck. Unlike Fred or Eric or Rose or Bob or Tad or even god forbid Steve Lewis, Heraldo is a pathetic little nothing who cowers in the shadows to keep from being exposed as a paid partisan hack of the Demo Central Committee. At least Fred is a real man who is up front about putting his name next to his own blog. Heraldo is just a ruse, a figment of a diseased mind and it deserves to be carved out with a spoon.

Ditto!

 
At 10:02 AM, Blogger Carol said...

Sorry, Tom, but you are mistaken. Heraldo has stated on his blog that he is not a democrat, so he is not, as you say, "a paid partisan hack of the Demo Central Committee". Please find another conspiracy theory.

The only thing I'd add is "without anesthetic."

I am entertained by Heraldo's mean-spirited attacks, innuendo and increasing obsession with the Arkleys, Security National and The Eureka Reporter.

You've tipped your hat too much Heraldo. Nobody else cares that much about trying to drag into the fray or contrive some bizarre conspiracy theory that the Arkleys are behind everything evil in the world.

Hank is notorious for appointing people to the Church of Amy.

Ohhhh....I get it, now. I thought it was an advertisement for a line of vacuum cleaners.

I guess that would be Eureka Sucks. Or, geez, even Hoover Sucks. Damn, or even Oreck Sucks....That's it, I'm quitting while I'm behind.

Hoover sucks dirt, that's for sure. Just read the Eye to see who's lied about this week.

Carol,do you believe every thing you read? Do you believe anything miss heraldo writes?

No, 7:36, I studied Critical Thinking class in college. But I am affiliated with the HCDCC. And we do not have any paid political hacks. We are volunteers.

Carol,

No offense, but any lessons learned during your class must not have stuck.

You ARE the same Carol who has advocated cutting a new road through Richardsons Grove as opposed to cutting four or five down along the existing road, arent you?

At the same time, you said you'd happily "hug trees" in order to save the four or five that were previously proposed for removal.

So, no offense, but even though you may not be paid, pardon us is we think of many of the HCDCC as hacks.

Fred,
Haven't been around Humboldt blogs for a few years now and am curious if 'Heraldo's' identity has been revealed?

 
At 1:00 PM, Blogger Fred Mangels said...

The Humboldt Herald finally bit the bullet a month or two ago. Since then, some have been saying Heraldo was Josh Drayton, who recently moved out of the area. I have no idea if that's true, though.
