Martin Luther King Day Parade Moved Again

Martin Luther King Jr. was born on 15 January, 1929. So it makes perfect sense to have the parade in honor of his natal day in…April? Another great idea, care of Councilman and Mayor for Life, Marion Barry. Apparently one of his staff thought the parade should take place on the first of April. Yeah, that’s a bright idea. So Barry, claiming he never agreed to that date, has now floated the 8th of April.

Barry said the initial April 1st date would cause DC to be “laughed out of the world.”

We’d just be joining you, Mr. Mayor, I’m still laughing at you about getting robbed by hoods in your own apartment, in your own district.

I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
