Idle time on Fourth

Dear Editor:

Who managed the Fourth of July parade? It was so screwed up – was it the mayor and council?

I was in the car division and forced to idle for almost two hours, with many others. I’ll bet $10,000 of gas and diesel went up in choking smoke.

My result was an overheated engine in a few blocks as the parade lurched ahead. I had to bail before my 35-year-old engine imploded.

Thanks, Aspen.
