Veterans' Day Parade Photo Essay

Frank here. I stepped outside and snapped some photos during the Veterans' Day parade this morning. Here are a smattering of images to give you a feel for what it was like. Also, please don't ask me to explain the black man dressed in civil war garb and waving the confederate flag, I was just as confused as you probably are.

--Update: Randy Neal over at knoxviews.com has clued me in on the mystery soldier's identity: His name is H.K. Edgerton and he's a former head of a North Carolina NAACP chapter.
You can read more about him here.

That guy with the long hair and the sign really needs to clean up his act. The problem with our society is we have too much tolerance for weirdos. Would you want that guy to appear at your house at 11 o'clock at nite?

people have to realize just because they can look weird doesn't give them the 'right'.

Everyone has a responsibility not to scare the bejabbers out of the children!!!!
