Well, I am here to report that the Mt. Rubidoux cross is apparently in good hands. The auction was held this morning and a coalition of community groups calling themselves “Totally Mt. Rubidoux” threw out the winning bid of $10,500. Did you hear that Cuz-J? Damn you should have come bid! We could have raised some money between us and owned and preserved the monument and cared for it ourselves (which of course means me because I live here and you don’t). Oh well, what is done is done. Anyways, it appears that the cross will be staying put where it belongs. I am glad that enough people cared about it. Angry Pumpkin reporting from the front lines.
