Who needs roses

The west coast can keep their over-produced parade of delicate flowers.

Who needs them when you’ve got a bunch of guys in drag doing dance routines?

Mummers!

If you’re interested in a cross between a Mardi Gras parade and a New Year’s Parade, check out the video coverage at WPHL’s web site. You can see the routines that the Mummers perform, including some with political and environmental themes. You won’t get that in any Rose Parade.

There’s a lot of tradition surrounding the Mummers, which you can read about here, at Philly.com, and at the Mummers’ official web site.

We’d originally planned to head out to the streets to watch the parade, but instead, we’re safely ensconced on the couch watching it on TV.

This is not my beautiful house!

Many moons ago in the blogosphere there was a minor writer with the moniker “Bryan S.” who flew the flag of “Arguing with Signposts.” His politics were vaguely conservative, warblogger, humorist, cynic, libertarian. In short, he screwed all that up. So, you might say this is my attempt to set that stuff straight. The flag is flying again. But we’ve set a course that’s at odds with the haze of the last eight years. Onward!
