Using the FU Bob moniker does not only cheapen the relationship I had with Robert Wood, it makes a mockery of a complex artist.

Ease up, people. Obviously no room for a sense of humor in the Kent Patch. Nobody can take a joke anymore. We'd rather jump on the 'hey, that offends me' bandwagon and cry about our hurt feelings. A city like Kent, with so much diversity, has something to 'offend' everyone, only if you let it. Jeez, live and let live. As for the FU Bob moniker, I don't think Robert would care. Plus, it wasn't his chosen name, it was a nickname we gave him. I picked it to keep his spirit and nickname alive. Don't care if you don't like it, not sorry if you're offended.

You pointed out he never picked the nickname up himself. Most people who remember him as FU Bob (myself included) don't have the same relationship, respect, affection and understanding toward him as those who knew him as Robert Wood. Maybe Robert wouldn't want the screenname FU Bob floating around the internet spouting off snarky comments. Hey, maybe he would, but we can't know. But you can tell some people aren't digging your use of the nickname. The man is no longer with us. I guess the thing is, respect people in death - friend or foe. Death is the ultimate end and everyone will face it one day so it is important to respect every person in death, even if you did not respect him in life. Like you said, he never held the moniker near and dear to his heart...
