    Just a little neighborhood July 4

    Just a little neighborhood July 4

    Every year on July 4 there is a mini-parade in the neighborhood in my home town in Rhode Island, apart from the “big” parade through the center of town.

    Mostly it’s for the neighborhood children, and it ends with ices and candy, after reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and singing the Star Spangled Banner.

    All we can do is try to teach our children well.

    These are the best kinds of celebrations. Happy Independence Day, Prof & everyone!

    Does anyone remember the “study” about a year ago, which concluded that children who went to July 4th parades were more likely to grow up as a conservative? Personally, I think this is more environment-related than event-related. I mean, any kid who goes to July 4th parades is probably being given much more of a values education than parade attendance.

    It just puts another nail in the coffin of the Progressocrats.

    Well, since the “Big” parade is in Bristol might serve to be the best guess as to your hometown, I’ll go in the opposite direction that maybe it’s Glocester’s Ancients and Horribles Parade.

    How close was I???
