Avenue A mourns blogger
Saturday evening, the first additions to the memorial to blogger Bob Arihood at Ray’s Candy Store included paper plates from “Mosaic Man” Jim Power and his canine companion Jesse Jane and from Chris Flash and Amy Sanchez. The photo of Arihood was taken by his friend Handsome Dick Manitoba, lead singer of the legendary punk rock group The Dictators. Blogger Shawn Chittle also left a sign. In addition to Power’s plaque in Ray’s window, graffiti artist Chico said he’s painting an Arihood memorial mural on Ray’s canopy.
