Emmaus Bans Candy Thrown In Parade

This is a good idea. I can't tell you the number of times I've held my breath when kids ran up all too close to the wheels of floats and other moving vehicles in a parade.

It's one thing for walkers who accompany these units to hand out stuff along side the curbs. Another to toss them off moving vehicles.

Kudos to Emmaus. Let's hope others will follow their example.

Not to be a party pooper, but could we kill these deafening sirens and air horns too?

They were designed to overcome blaring car radios and closed windows. Not blowing people's eardrums out ten feet away. Scares the crap out of some of these little kids too. Wouldn't a bunch of flashing lights be enough to entertain them?
