Pink Slip Pity Party for Roger Snoble

Join BusTard, Browne and the BusBenchers for the Pink Slip Pity Party for Roger Snoble next Friday (18 April) at 6 p.m., at Union Bagel. (We might go over to Traxx, unless we have young ‘uns among us.) Too, be sure to bring a small written piece—say, 50 words or so—about where you think Roger should be employed next. Best bit gets a Toy Bus Metro Liner and runner-up gets a Roger Snoble Mustache Mask!
