I see that Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Church, the 'God Hates Fags' folks, are planning on picketing the funeral of Ronnie James Dio. For the sin of introducing the devil horns hand sign into rock and roll, apparently.

Dammit, I would love to have the Westboro Baptist Church picket my funeral. I bet they wouldn't do it if you asked them to, though. And paying for it is out of the question.

What can I do to tick off Fred and his minions? Refuse to name a character after him?

Come to think of it, I'd love to have just about anyone picket my funeral. The AFL-CIO, Toastmasters International, the American African Violet Society, the Heritage Foundation.

If I haven't pissed off someone enough to make them want to picket my funeral, well, I probably haven't been living life all the way up. It's a sign of failure.

I'm sad about that. But I'm glad Ronnie James Dio will be going out, like Meursault, amidst howls of execration. It seems very metal.
