Letter to the editor: Brentwood July 4 parade spectacular

Kudos to the Brentwood Fourth of July Committee for the spectacular parade on July 4. It truly consisted of something for everyone and a combination of fun (the Columbus Brothers’ and “Totally ’80s” floats) and more meaningful appearances (such as the vintage military vehicles and the personnel who marched). It was heartwarming to see the Himalayan marchers; we and our ancestors came to this country in search of freedom, so it is good to welcome our newest brothers and sisters.

Shame on the people who left during the finale, the fire truck cavalcade. Those brave, dedicated people spend so much time in training, work and practice. They risk their lives for no pay; the least we can do is acknowledge their presence with a cheerful wave. Maybe they would have preferred to relax and watch a parade themselves.

Thank you to all who worked on or participated in the parade. Wishing you many more years of spectacular celebrations.

Audrey Martin

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
