If we are going to have a MLK parade, let's put a little imagination into it and have something worth looking at besides cars with "dignitaries" (elected officials) sitting in them, smiling and waving to the crowd.
And in my opinion, the bands, fire trucks (turn off the screeching sirens, please), community groups and businesses represented in the parade were less than exciting or inspiring. They were more aggravating than anything.
Parades--including our precious Azalea Parade--are noisy and tedious. As for me, I had rather watch bamboo grow.
