"Next year, let's try to strut our independence at a higher level. Tens of thousands of people gather every year along Sherman Avenue for the much-anticipated Fourth of July parade, and in its own endearing way, it's a fantastic tradition. Further, it's free, so complainers would be wise to remember that in life, you usually get what you pay for. But in our opinion, a good parade can be made even better. The parade can be filled with more interesting entries, making the experience more enjoyable for viewers and more rewarding to the businesses and nonprofits that comprise its bulk."

DFO: This year's Fourth of July Parade musta been a snoozer for Brand X to mildly reprimand the handlers. New Regional Editor Scott Maben told me Monday that he and his family left the parade early because: 1. There were too many uninteresting entries, 2. There were ha-huge gaps among the entries, causing the parade to be uber-long, and 3. It's was too hot. Scott said many other families left early, too. Sounds like this was one parade that was good to miss.
