Thanks to Ramon "LP4" Medina for passing along this bit of Big Brother action. This morning, Rudyard's got an email from the MySpace administration informing the Montrose venue the above poster had been removed from Rudz's page for violating the terms of use - though the social-networking site didn't say which specific term. One of Rudyard's 4,600 friends likely reported the poster as offensive. "I guess we'll just go with the less offensive poster that has Jesus bent over doing coke while Hitler penetrates him in a bed of aborted babies," said Medina, stipulating he was speaking as Rudz's "Web geek" but not as an official representative of the club. "That should be a bit less offensive to that person's sensibilities, I'd think," Medina added. "OK, obviously, I'm kidding. Jesus is cool by me and he probably, unlike our 'friend,' has a sense a humor."

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
