EDITOR'S DESK: ‘Blessed are the Children’ who attended parade

Published: Wednesday, December 5, 2012 at 01:13 PM.

Unfortunately, for many people, just one negative thing can spoil what, over all, was an enjoyable evening.

And there’s more to come.

The preacher who caused such a furor gleefully announced Monday on the News Bulletin’s Facebook page that he plans to appear in next year’s parade.

Meanwhile, a number of residents have questioned whether the association can set standards to ensure that future parade participants adhere to their family friendly theme. That means no “ladies night” advertisements or revelers carrying signs that read, “HIV began one person at a time and it will end one person at a time.” (Like parents should have to explain sexually transmitted diseases to their 5-year-olds!)

Perhaps “Blessed are the children,” as a theme, resonated after all.

Blessed are the children who had to be there.
