Confused in Orinda

San Jose, CA

#1 Jul 6, 2008
I really don't get what's happened to the Fourth of July. It's as if it's been hijacked by people who don't remember history at all. In fact, nothing sums up the *circus* effect more than the parade in Orinda.

Since when is felling a tree and parading its trunk down the street part of a Fourth of July celebration? It literally has nothing to do with remembering that our country was started with a revolution.

But of course these parades do nothing now but celebrate local merchants, local organizations, the military and high school sports. This is ridiculous.
