Irrigon parade

To the town of Irrigon: Thanks for the parade Saturday, July 30, 2011, but where’s your heads? You absolutely blew me away at the start of your parade.

It was so un-American to see one person walking down the street throwing candy out, followed by an outhouse. I have been to parades for at least 60 years and have never seen such a slap in the face to the U.S. flag in my life.

Maybe next year you folks will find somebody to carry the U.S. flag to start your parade — not an outhouse.
