This 'event' is an affront to every productive taxpayer that will be inconvenienced by this group of thugs. Someone should sue for the return of taxpayer money wasted on this so called 'event.' Personally I hope it turns into a riot and no similar events will be held in the future.

I understand that Mr. Howard's film will place the event in the fictional town of Mayberry. He is likely to cast the following:

Beyonce as Aunt Bee;
Jay-Z as Officer B. Fife;
Michael Nutter as Floyd the Barber.

The role of Opie has not yet been cast.

Ron Howard will reprise his Opie character, with the mannerisms, speech and wardrobe of the original to highlight the plight of television's aging child stars forever locked in their roles, even as adults, by adoring fans.
