Thank God. What a mess that's been for those of us who live near there (even part-time). We've beenRead More up Will Rogers since I was 2 and now I live there as caretaker part-time. The Rivas folks can't bear the nonsense associated with this woman's residency in their idyllic 1% old people paradise lol

Leslie, It's ironic that you want to abridge my freedom of speech or exile me on the anniversary ofRead More the birth of our democracy. It's just a parade for G/dsakes! I was just pointing out that in the Palisades, it's clearly a commercial enterprise.

I don't know what parade you've imagined (since you don't go) but the one I see every year has tonsRead More of local kids with self-decorated bikes or scooters, neighbors walking their dogs dressed in colorful hats or doggie T-shirts and the local Pony League baseball champs (my son rode on a hay bale in the back of a truck the year his team won when he was 9). Our city council folk and school board members and a few celebrity grand marshalls or honorary mayors who usually LIVE in the Palisades. There are usually some pretty humble (crepe paper) but cheery homemade floats from the various Pac Pal charity or community service organizations; a local music school had two guitarists playing down the route, then came MORE local dogs and dog-owners in a second red-white and blue wave of pooches. Our local firemen/women rode on their trucks with their families. The Pali High football team threw candy at the crowd from the back of another vehicle. Miss and Master Teen Palisades (or whatever they're called) rode by waving. And there were bands and horses and mariachis and one group of baton twirlers from elsewhere -- but they still had a very hometown parade feel to them. And our Optimist Club marched in their star spangled boxer shorts. ha-ha! It's a pretty homey and inclusive parade that all sorts of members of our village take part in from babies in the firetrucks to 90-year-olds in their snazzy boxer shorts. What is so commercial about any of these things! I don't get YOU. And... why put down some local woman documentary filmmakers' work of the last several years--clearly a labor of love on her part (and her time and money)--when you haven't even seen the doc or the parade? It just seemed mean. I should not have suggested that you move. My apologies. But I keep to the suggestion that you SEE the parade and film before bashing them... or me.
