All Quiet On The Hayden Front

The U.S. Army Reserve made good on its promise to hold an “open house” on having some of its soldiers marching through Hayden one Sunday morning in almost full gear as part of a training exercise. Sort of. The “house” was open Wednesday night, but it was reminiscent of that old ‘60s poster: “Suppose they gave a war, and nobody came?” A half-dozen men in camouflage BDUs showed up at the Hayden City Hall and occupied the council chamber on Wednesday night, and waited for anyone wanting to question them about an exercise last month which involved several platoons marching along neighborhood streets/Jim Camden (pictured), Spin Control. More here.

Question: What do you make of this flap involving armed Hayden Reservists drilling by marching down Hayden streets earlier this winter?
