Sadly, not long after I posted the good news of my father reaching age 84, I returned to my office to see that Kevin Roderick just lost his father at age 89.
Point of personal privilege
The News & Chatter side of LA Observed plans to stand down for a day or so to mark the passing of my father. Robert Roderick lived to 89 and will be missed by many, among them the ethnic restaurateurs he helped keep in business around the San Fernando Valley. Those selected bloggers, columnists and political aides who would find his unsolicited email tips in their in-boxes are on their own now.
My condolences to Kevin and all his family.
