* Social media included, surprisingly, some unfamiliar comments about the Gasparilla Children’s Parade last Saturday. Had to do with loud-speakered rap music, with lyrics that contained some inevitable “mother******” references. Some of those complaining were, in turn, demeaned as “boomers” that can’t get with pop culture. But at a “children’s parade”?
* Scooters and Gasparilla. What could go wrong?
* Wouldn’t it be more fitting if MLK Day were known much, much more for its focus on service than its celebration via parades and parties? Or is that just a “boomer” take?
