Speaking Well of the Dead

A July 4 Parade for kids, DPW, Police, Fire, Military, farmers and families.  God bless America

So I have to admit being somewhat bemused by today's enshrining editorial simultaneously published in the venerable Daily Hampshire Gazette and Amherst Bulletin lamenting the loss of the Amherst July 4th Parade next month after a march of ten consecutive years.

This from newspapers who only four years ago told the private July 4th Parade Committee to go find another holiday while simultaneously supporting the town of Amherst nationalizing the Parade in direct violation of a 9-0 Supreme Court First Amendment ruling.

Thank God for the ACLU.  Because when the mainstream media drops the ball, who else are you going to call?

Kevin Joy always made sure the July 4th Parade ran on time

You're expecting internal consistency over time from a newspaper?

Bet they never looked at what they wrote on this topic prior to publishing this latest largely unread piece of opinion. No one knows who writes the editorials and no one cares what he/she/they think.

It's no coincidence that the introduction of the Bulletin editorial to the Commentary page came at the same time as that page ceased to be a must-read in Amherst.
