Letter to the Editor: Military parade is childish

So the baby boy wants a pretty parade!  Friends, this is so childish!  Ordinance and military weapons are, by definition, ugly.  A parade will not make them any less ugly.
The whole world knows we have a huge stockpile of weapons.  Parading them will not change anything – except perhaps the torn-up blacktop between the White House and the Capitol.
You want to improve our economy!  You want more growth!  Well, try better schools and better neighborhoods.  Watch the people who live there get better jobs so they can spend more money – and watch our economy zoom!
Pretty Parade –  No! No!
