the mayor of slade

Post by absolutsugarsmurf » Mon Feb 28, 2005 6:57 pm

This weekend at Miguel's I heard that someone had murdered the "Mayor of Slade". Something about a drug deal gone bad. Later I was told that he wasn't murdered, only that someone had lit him on fire. Does anyone know anything substantial about this? The mayor gave me such a good laugh everytime I passed his trailer, I'd hate it if he was gone. Plus I hate to hear about another murder in the gorge. I wonder if spencer will put a tribute to the mayer in his video. Anyway, any info would be appreciated.

He almost burned himself up again this past winter.I hope your rumors are wrong.
He told me that he burned up a couple trailers already. Pouring kerosene while intoxicated gets him in trouble.

We had a local stop by the shop asking for donations. From what I heard it is true that he passed on. She stated that he was shot in the neck and then burned. This is all second hand info, so take it as that. Sad, very sad.

Also there is a collection bucket at the Shell station for anyone wanting to donate.

I wish I had more information, if I hear more I will post.

miguel told me that he was doused with kerosene by a "friend" aka dangerous psycho type that lives close by but that there is no hard evidence to prosecute so far. Hope they get the guy who did it and put him away - for everybody's safety.

It royally sucks that someone would do that. But then after what I've heard, seen, and read that there are nothing but a bunch of psychos around there anyway (take for instance the "good old boys" trailer on the way to Nada tunnel with the big rebel flag on the front porch). Kinda like with the bear being shot-I tell you it takes a really "BIG" man to shoot a bear in a cage, and then to set someone on fire. What is up with that? The mayor of slade was harmless.

Also KD good to climb with you again on Sat. I ended up home Sun. afternoon with the flu.

Rodney, don't know the last name. He was not living the healthest of lifestyles, so something like this was probably in the cards for him sooner or later. Still, it is a hella shame. Nice enough guy - I have chatted with him a few times while eating at the Chevron.

See, there's the difference between Republican's and real humans. The Republicans think you deserve death if you're not just like them while real humans think it's sad when someone gets shot in the neck regardless.

What is that saying...? It was by some famous guy that a lot of people say they follow... oh, what was it...? Oh yeah! "Judge not lest ye be judged." I think that Jesus guy said that. He said something about loving the sinner as though he were your own brother and sharing your worldly goods with everyone and some other stuff. Sounds like a hippy and/or communist to me.
