Clark: Easter Bunny Ends 32-Yr Run

I was sorry to hear that after a 32-year run, the Easter Bunny won’t be hiding any plastic eggs filled with tooth-rotting candy this weekend at Riverfront Park. Apparently there was a lack of a sponsor or a problem with the Easter Bunny’s agent. This isn’t the only Easter eggstravaganza going on around town, of course. But also I think we will be missing a huge opportunity if we don’t use this civic letdown to give all the disappointed kiddies the same words of comfort that my dad gave me whenever things didn’t work out. “Douglas,” he’d say in a firm, fatherly tone … “Quit bellyaching. Sometimes life isn’t fair!” Ah, the “life ain’t fair” gambit/Doug Clark, SR. More here.

Question: Do you still dye and hide eggs at your home?
